"I can proudly and honestly say that SLDI has made a difference in every aspect of my life: from spiritual, social/mental and economic. I have come to understand how to identify the real needs of people, projects and even myself, how to work with others in a team or develop personal leadership skills. I have learned how to find ways of meeting or satisfying the needs of the community. SLDI has made me have open eyes and ears to opportunities around me."
