My notes from Africa in photos

I know that a lot of people like  and expect photos from me but my last blogs didn’t contain many. Therefore I have decided to make a selection of photos of the best moments of my staying in Africa. My colleagues and friends         Children Lake Victoria   Mwanza Safari Sunsets Zanzibar             IT WAS TIME […]

It is time to say Goodbye Mwanza, Tanzania!

It is quite difficult for me to find words to farewell but unfortunately the time to say Goodbye has come. Positive emotions overflow and it is very difficult to describe  the project picking up correct words and feelings. If you ask me whether I learned something? – Yes, I did. If you ask me if the project has […]

GSK PULSE volunteers in Tanzania

In this post I just want to  share briefly how wonderfully I spent my last  weekend. After moving to a new building and equipping a new office GSK Tanzania  kindly invited  PULSE volunteers on excursions and all five volunteers who stay in Tanzania kindly agreed.  We found our colleagues while they were finishing  their PDPs but still had a great opportunity […]

Something about work with patients

Close to end of the project I start remembering how it all started. When I applied for participation in the program I really had a dream  to get into the organization related with work with children  but my organization PRRR is engaged in work with HIV-infected patients. I am  no way complaining , but it caused a […]

We all are human beings

During my 6 month assignment within the PULSE program I have met a lot of new faces. Some of them were absolutely spineless, playing games and trying to reach a success. From my point of view a personality is not characterized as a person with great success, property and medialized face. For me a personality […]

“Weight of words, shock of pictures”

A famous magazine in France has this slogan:” Le poids des mots, le chocs des images” (Weight of words, shock of pictures). I will not be able to reach the quality and the pertinence of this magazine as I did not met celebrity … except one… Mama Obama at the “Worlds AIDS Marathon” in kisumu […]

All Good Things……….

Unfortunately the time is now fast approaching (3 days as I post) when I will have to say goodbye to Rwanda and head back to the UK. As is natural at times like these, it has led me to reflect on my time here and evaluate the impact I have had in Rwanda and how […]

Soon the end of my mission in DRC

I cannot believe that I‘m almost at the end of my PULSE mission. Looking at my calendar yesterday, I realized that I will leave the DRC next week … I’m starting to think about things that I will miss … but also things that I will not miss ;-) ! I finish my mission on a very positive experience in […]

Zebra Fish, Sleeping Beauty Transposition, CARs and microRNA Sponges, Oh My!

What on earth could these words be describing? When listed out, it is almost impossible to believe that they are used in the same conference. Is it a Zebra or a Fish or some Frankenstein amalgamation of the two? Turns out the zebrafish is a type of tropical fish that serves the dual purpose of […]

Version française plus bas dans le texte – French version further down I just reached the halfway mark of my assignment and I still haven’t shared with you what it is I actually do here in Dakar other than enjoying the nice weather, the ocean, and the Senegalese culture and people. If you recall, I […]
