Working with ICO was a very enriching experience and I learned a lot during this whole process, knowledge that will help me in my professional life when I return to Colombia. After my experience with ICO, I have a different conception of the work of NGOs, now I consider them as the main allies of the populations in situation of vulnerability, and as the principal organisations that advocate for the respect and guarantee of the human rights, seeking to fill the gap left by the omission or weakness of the state.
