The first week definitely went by in a blur!
Our full team of the Bogota Orchids met for our ‘first’ official meeting on the morning of October 4th:
After a quick debriefing of our teams, projects, and timeline, we went for a tour of the city:
A very interesting place to keep extra gas in Bogota:
The next day we went to the SAP Colombia office to meet with our host organizations/clients for the first time:
We even had time for a big group photo:
Our second ‘home’ for the month of October (Fundacion Capital’s office):
Gek was quick to make a new friend at the office:
A traditional Colombian lunch (Yummy!), along with Georg’s healthy juice of the day (is that water blended with grass???):
A quick team photo walking back to the office after lunch:
Our ‘go to’ coffee shop to stay awake after a long day’s work:
Georg hard at work in our team’s after hours ‘home office’:
The first work week went by far too fast. We learned a lot about our host organizations by interviewing all of the project leads, senior management, and executive team members, and we finally finished our Scope of Work. Although we took on quite a bit of work, and increased our scope within our SOW, we’re very confident as a group that we’ll be able to make a real meaningful and positive contribution to Fundacion Capital, in order to help them foster their growth, and make a positive difference to those people that live in poverty in.
