    Pros

    CUSO provides all the support in flight tickets, visa, vaccinations, and moving to the new country might be a smooth process.

    Cons

    The Counterparts are not well chosen many times, there is a lot of deficiencies in communication between local office and the Ottawa´s. There is not an impact evaluation for each program.

    Advice to Management

    To have more communication tools vertically to timely correct and foresee realistic and appropiate outcomes from each project
