Tickets and visas are in, and I got my vaccinations and am halfway packed after I’ve blown a layer of dust off my backpack. Almost ready for takeoff! This Saturday we fly from Amsterdam to Dhaka, Bangladesh. Not for vacation but with a mission!
Bangladesh, the Country of Bengal. The country with a population density of almost 3,000 people per square mile. The country with 800 rivers. The country where Save the Children has achieved so many good things with help from the IKEA Foundation.
Next week I will get the chance to see it for myself. We will visit different projects related to protection, empowerment and education for out-of-school and disabled children. I feel grateful to contribute, and I’m looking forward to sharing my story and hopefully inspiring everybody back home.
