Problems, solutions and planning ahead

Let the work begin!

We made a plan! For the upcoming 5 weeks we have scheduled a variety of tasks ranging from producing an image video to writing a convincing proposal for a project that requires 25.000€ funding - each year. Our working plan for the first week said: Get to know the organisation and their work. And this is exactly what we did. We met all the employees and visited several projects LEEDO [...]

LEEDO: The first days…

The first few days we spent getting to know LEEDOs work and evaluating where we might start to work. Finally our project has started! Our flight took us from Germany via London to New Dehli, where we spent a night before flying on to Bangladesh. At the airport Rana, a LEEDO staff [...]
