With no intern team in Africa we looked forward to taking the time to rework our mission and allow our staff the valuable time to raise their support, get further training (Clever) and have a baby (Kaisers). This year we were able […]

  • Today I caught myself doing this. I had successfully walked down the steps and was now struggling to open my office door. Why? Because I was simultaneously carrying a 2.5ft glass window pane, my beloved iPad, and a full mug of coffee. Hi my name is Allan and I am a stupid multitasker. I like […]
