QLA: Work in Progress II

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I came back to Phonsavan last tuesday after 6 weeks living in Guesthouses due to my work and meetings in Vientiane, Phongsaly and Sayabouly. Great to be home again! And great to see how things have moved forward at the UXO Survivor Information Centre. Thanks a lot to Katharina Moebus who took over while I was away and who did a great job! Most of the furniture we ordered is finished, the Centre has fresh paint on the walls, complete new electricity, last weeks we got some first products from Saoban for the small souvenir-corner and it gets more complete with every new day… So nice to finally see the results of our hard work! And so many lessons learnt (I will write about them later)! Katti and me will be busy the next week with organizing and moderating a workshop for the update of the exhibition. This will be one of the last things to do (and I think almost the most important) and I’m looking forward to see the results. The Grand Opening of the centre will be around the 23rd of January – but I will keep you updated and hope to see some of you there!

    Hi Tabea: It’s Connie here. I had not seen this site before. It is wonderful that you captured the ups and downs of putting the USIC together. The pictures, heartfelt comments, and team work that is reflected in all of this are great. It was lovely to meet you and Katti. You are an invincible team!! Great work! Thank you so much for all you have done, not just with the attractiveness and practicality of the Center, but the energy, heart and soul you and Katti have brought to the QLA team. You have infused enthusiasm and vision into the program.
    Good luck with the rest of your work in Laos and whatever your next assignment is. Best, Connie
