The team is back together!

21.08.20

We are back! Last week, Regina and Suzanne were on a flight back to Freetown after being away for 5 months, and after the mandatory COVID-tests (which were all negative!), the office in Freetown is open again on a daily basis. The rest of the staff has kept the office afloat by meeting up once a week over the past months (thank you Veronica, Makalay, Foday & Juma!), and we could not be happier to see each other again in person and to be back in full swing!

From next week onward, we will continue with the Pre-Accelerator programme, which will last for another 6 weeks, and start up other courses, such as the ICT training and the next cohort of the Pre-Accelerator. More on that later!
