despite the chaotic situation that COVID-19 has caused, a lot of things have happened in the first half of this year. We have tried to report about most of it in our Newsletter that came out end of July.
Thanks a lot to Anita Jakubowski for reviewing and making the German-English a bit more English-English.

In the winter semester 2019/20, together with Prof. Christian Hähnlein and Fabian Riemenschneider, we offered a module for the Studium Generale at the Frankfurt University of Applied Science, in which we discussed and worked on the water project in Tanzania. The students got an insight into the living situation of the rural population of Tanzania and an understanding of the complexity of the development project work.
We thank everyone who participated in our first summer project management academy. The 6 full days filled with project planning, M & E and storytelling content have pushed everyone to their limits, but reading through the participants‘ evaluation, we have achieved our goal and a clear mission to repeat it the next year. We also thank the mayor of Bad Soden, Dr. Blasch, that he has found the time to welcome our workshop participants in Bad Soden.
This summer we give our first 6 day seminar on projectmanagment. It covers the topics: project planning, M&E and Storytelling. It will be held in Bad Soden this time. Contact us for more information if you want to join.
