Habari za asubuhi (good morning) everyone!
After a long but smooth flight we arrived safely in our hotel in Dar Es Salaam, the city where will be staying for almost two weeks!
Yesterday we met with Renalda (Chief Technical & Operations Director), and Mr. Elladius Tesha (Executive director) of ICT4Development Tanzania, both very friendly and warm people. We further discussed the business programme and the planning for the week to come.
Today we will be meeting with Mr. Ahmed Ghaddar from OK Plast (a partner of Chilambo), to discuss their needs and expectations. Chilambo collects the waste and OK Plast will take care of the recycling. They are specialised in the recycling of plastic, which they reuse for example to make sandals and slippers. They have recently started recycling used batteries as well.
In the afternoon, we will be meeting Renalda again in the ICT4D offices to prepare the business game and to check the equipment.
We’re very much looking forward to meet all these different people and see how we can start a fruitful collaboration.
Stay tuned for more news!
