“To hold an intention, an idea and see it come to life is a wonderful thing. As the Irish poet John O’Donohue said facts are the children of possibility and, when I look back at 20 years of Pro Bono Australia, I find this is true.
Pro Bono Australia has often been ahead of the game – sometimes too far ahead, which is a lesson in itself. But there’s no doubt that with many initiatives our timing has been right.
Our task then and now is to support an engaged and valued civil society.
