#FF…Funding Friday…

Yes that’s right David – I’ve stole your hashtag, but I promise it’s for a good reason.

I’ve been in Bangladesh for just over a week now and in that time seen some wonderful things, met some lovely people and experienced some things I probably never would have anywhere else in the world. To add to that I have on [...]

Plane sailing

It’s been a a bit of a trek getting out to Bangladesh where I am working with Benjamin for a few weeks and if I thought the trekking was over I was wrong. The transport here in Khulna is slow progress and the roads would keep the highways agency back in the UK busy [...]
