Meetings with Outreach Congo Staff

A travel blog entry by ditchthecube

Outreach has a program in DRC (Congo-Kinshasa) near the city of Lubumbashi (closest city to Zambia). Traveling there would have been expensive, time-consuming, and possibly dangerous. Instead, the staff traveled to Chingola to discuss how things are going in their programs. The most obvious difference in our interaction is that their English is very limited and so almost all of ...

I called back my taxi driver from Saturday and had him pick me up at 8am. Half an hour later we were back at Lusaka airport. Sitting in the atrium was Harry, chairman of the Outreach board of directors. Harry and I traveled together to visit the Outreach Philippines project in April 2010. We spent about an hour catching up, checked in for our flight and were on our way to N'Dola, provincial capital of ...
