Another farewell today, this time at SIRC. I had a busy day finalizing the content for a Rotary grant application, and then ran a session to help define the Elevator Pitch staff will use when talking about SIRC. We gathered the heads of department and a few long-term staff, and had some good fun. By the end of the hour we had an elevator pitch defined, which will be translated into Nepali and used to officially launch the Friends of SIRC campaign. Watch the website for that upcoming announcement.
Immediately after, there was a gathering of both patients and staff in the canteen, for some treats and a farewell presentation to me. I was delighted with the turnout and the lovely words, as always, from Esha. And I was delighted to get a t-shirt ‘You are Special’ signed by all the staff – very special for me!
So now I am in Kathmandu, for a few more farewells, and will fly to Dhaka on Wednesday. Time sure is flying fast!
