The incredible impact Alex & Susan de Mont are having on people’s lives

Susan & Alex de Mont Legacy Fund recipient Cameron Qali, recently presented Alex de Mont with a gift, to acknowledge the incredible impact he has had on her life, as well as many others. In a moving speech, Alex said:

“This is a bit emotional for me, in a strange way I’d rather this wasn’t happening at all. I’d rather my wife was here. But life moves on and takes its own course. I’m very proud we can do something in her memory, for a cause she cared so passionately about. To all the organisations and individuals here tonight – you embody what my wife is about.”

Dr Suzella Palmer from University of Bedfordshire summed up Alex de Mont perfectly, by quoting Brazilian academic Paulo Friere:

“If I am not in the world simply to adapt to it, but rather transform it, and if it is not possible to change the world without a certain dream or vision for it, I must make use of every possibility there is not only to speak about my utopia, but also to engage in practices consistent with it.”
