The journey back (REISEN TILBAKE)

This fall, three Norwegian aid veterans are returning to countries they used
to work in. However, they do not intend to travel alone. The aid workers will
be accompanied by nine common Norwegians who will report on the effects of
Norwegian aid.

Norway has been involved in public development aid since 1952. The goal has always
been to fight poverty – with different means. Many projects over the years have
given people a new existence, dignity and faith in the future. But there are also
projects where patience is tested.

Three former aid workers will be making a trip back to where they worked,
meeting people they worked with at the time, and look at what has happened to
the communities and the people.

Nine ordinary Norwegians will travel with the veterans. These will give you a glimpse
of Norwegian assistance. They should convey what they experience and share with
you their reflections on what they see. The travelers will also meet people and
hear their stories, both people who have worked with the assistance and people who
have benefited from assistance. Everyone has a story.
