I have met many of you and still I am aware that I also haven't met many of you. Dutch competence just started up this year for real and we did a workshop SALT/CLCP in Holland. We ended with a laugh and taped a song we created in the workshop to share part of our dream and practices.

A very happy birthday Boris! Have a wonderful celebration.
Hello from Cape Town! We've not met yet, but I've heard lots of good things about you from others in the team. I hope you're well.
The Constellation has a team working on preparing the Annual Report for 2011, and I'm trying to gather information on partnerships. I understand you've been the lead on the work with WASH-Competence in Suriname.
Over the next few days, I'll be reading all the partnership reports, and using those to write a short partnership summary. By next week, I'll send you that summary for your comments and edits.
I may also, in the next few days, send you a short questionnaire with some questions for your reflection about the partnership. Is there an email address you'd prefer me to send it to?
In the meantime:
Thanks for your help. I'm looking forward to working together.
