As I promised in my first blog, I would like to give you an update to the preparations of the annual Fleet Forum conference event due on 23-25th March in Geneva which currently is my main responsibility until the end of my MTW assignment.
But are these differences, India’s heterogeneity, really that surprising. Just have a look at the sheer size of the country (using Jelmer’s blog as a good example), placing India on top of the map of Europe. If one tries to compare Sweden and Spain on the above mentioned parameters plenty of differences can be found as well. However, not only size has led to the current differences.
Once upon a time there was a Bulgarian girl named Kamelia, who was working for TNT... Since dealing with all activities related to the company's image Kamelia literally lived with the joys and problems of her beloved company. As a true "Brand guardian", she was so devoted to her company that even the local country manager joked with her that she is "orange blooded". Kamelia, however, was most fascinated and proud that works in a company that is a true example of corporate citizen of the world.
The past couple of weeks I have been working on my fundraising proposal. How did I want to raise money, but at the same time show people in other countries what a magnificent country Nicaragua was? I decided to make a book about life in Nicaragua. The book would contain pictures, stories of WFP beneficiaries, interviews with other interesting parties, poems and drawings. I am not going to explain the exact content of it yet, but it is going to be an interesting book which hopefully can raise a sufficient amount of money.
Writing this entry, I've visited and trained the clincians of Dar es Salaam and Tunduma in Tanzania and the last location of my program, Mlolongo in Kenya.
I was almost one week behind in updating my blog due to internet connectivity and the lack of time due to the tight schedule, but I was able to train all three clinician and get all software installed and working.
Dar es Salaam is located just outside the city, in the industrial area, many local community members visit this centre, but that goes for almost every centre.
Centre's Malaba and Katuna, both in Uganda are ready to start working with Comets now.
I'm one week behind on my blog, but that's because of not having power in the free time I had left at the end of my days, or even no internet connection....it seems to be common in all these countries.
I've finished training the clinicians in both centre's and had to do some more work via remote connection cause almost everyday there are these outages, which we don't control.
Last week at Namanga, Salgaa and Emali, all in Kenya
