«I visited the vocational college in Bangladesh that is supported by CO-OPERAID and was impressed by how much can be achieved with little money. I also saw how enthusiastic the young people from the Hill Tribes are about attending the college and it came home to me how essential education is. As we in Switzerland have a really high standard of living, we sometimes forget that people in other parts of the world don’t see their right to education put into practice. Development aid seems a phrase for us, but in Bangladesh, it took on new life and meaning for me.»
