I guess the one at Bhutan was a bold one, having to leave the country for a year and be immersed in another community. Moreover, the 'entry point' to the project was somehow halfway and it's all... part of what's planned for in the project.
This time, the role and scope differ - the 'entry point' is closer to the 'start' of the project. Certainly, the amount of planning and thoughts to put into also differ. The Feasibility Study is something new to me. In fact, in layman term, it's to "recee" the place - more than the place, but to understand the needs, the situation and put forth observation and recommendation. This decides which path the project will undertake... going to materialise or not, progress as expected or different strategies to be suggested for the partnership.
This is going to be a brand new experience again. Look forward learning new things and getting the opportunity to apply what I learn...

Hey, all of them have long hair! They use the same colour ribbon (that goes along with the trousers)! Hm... forget to ask if it's part of the uniform :P
Pupils attending their first ICT class in the new academic year. They recall what they learnt in Grade 8, ie. the use of Paint program to draw and colour.
The girls were excited over the fact they were 'captured' in the digital photo.
At the end of this block is the kitchen that prepares lunch for all pupils in the school. In fact, this is also one of the incentives to draw pupils to attend school.
