“Through this Resource Mobilisation course, ACONERUQ has begun to run planned and coordinated activities. Internally, we’ve expanded our vision about where we want to go and what resources we need to fulfil our mission, and we’ve expanded our donor network.  It’s important to filter and reassess partnerships so as not to weaken the quilombola struggle.” Reinaldo Avelar, from the Association of the Black Rural Quilombola Communities of Maranhão (Associação das Comunidades Negras Rurais Quilombolas do Maranhão: ACONERUQ)
