My first trip to Dhaka was a success. I met the DAM team and visited the first two sites.

April 18th I took the plane to Dhaka. I met Riad and Irfan, two excellent engineers from DAM. Did you know 10.000 people are volunteering or working for this NGO? I visited the first two sites, located 45 minutes drive from Jessore. The first site is in a village, the second site near a school. On May 16th Riad and Irfan will visit the Netherlands for a 1 week training.
