Thank you for being very generous to us. This program means a lot to me….One thing I am most grateful for is how this course has changed my understanding about social work. I often associated social work with giving and supplying material aids, financial help to people who need them which is maybe partly true in some cases. But the most important point for me in social work is about discovering my strengths. It is all about working with others to discover the "geniuses and brilliances” we have in us. It is all about how far and how deep can we go with what we have. -Michael/Uganda Case Management Participant
