Here’s a quick post to share some really exciting news with you people!
This past week was personally very hectic and a lot of things actually happened during the past five days. The week started with a really fruitful meeting with three people from Harel Mallac. For those of you who don’t already know, we’ve been working since the end of last year with Harel Mallac to develop a new website for ELI Africa and I would like to seize the opportunity here to thank Mr Oliver Lew and his team for the great work they’ve done so far. The aim of the meeting was to agree on the final design of the website and to discuss some other issues, which I am not going to mention here fearing that I might break the suspense. I can however say that I was very pleased with what they proposed. So, exciting news #1 – if we don’t encounter any major obstacle, ELI Africa will have a new website by the end of this month!
Exciting news #2! When I went to the office on that same day, I was welcomed by Vedant, Sam and a third person. She was acting a bit shy but always had a beautiful smile on her face. I’ll most certainly talk about her in more details in future posts but I would just like to introduce you to Mrs Palaram, our newly appointed Operations Officer! I would like to seize the opportunity this time to say a monumental thank you to Krishnee, our former Operations Officer, and to wish her the best for her future endeavours! She’ll always be part of our ELI Africa family.
On Wednesday, I spent the whole day at the Ministry of Finance for a training session whose aim was to help NGOs with presenting and managing projects. It was actually quite interesting but on that particular day, my mind was oftentimes wandering somewhere else. Around Roches Bois to be more precise, which brings us to the exciting news #3 – classes resumed in our center in Roches Bois on Wednesday! The first feedbacks from the ELI Corps members were actually very encouraging. According to Matthieu, the kids were excited and ready to tackle the coming year. I am definitely going there on Monday. You might not believe me but I am missing those kids.
It was a good but tiring week. TGIF!
Have a nice week end!
