This blog is about what happens if you follow your dreams. For a long time I’ve wanted to live and work abroad, in a developing country, and I made that happen. In July 2012, together with my husband, I went to Wau, South Sudan, to work with a women’s organisation. Share my knowledge and experience with them and at the same time learn a lot from them as well. I enjoyed my time there very much, but in December 2013 I had to leave because large-scale fighting broke out and it was not safe to stay anymore. But that didn’t mean the end of the dream. In June 2014 I left the Netherlands again for a developing country. I spent almost two years in Cambodia, this time in the capital Phnom Penh. Again, I was working with local organisations and experiencing their daily struggles to improve their lives. After that, I moved back to Africa, where I lived in Kigali, Rwanda. I worked as a consultant and coach, supporting international and local organisations that work with the most vulnerable.
