Incredible India!

I am going to India. I will be part of a team building an eco-friendly, design-thinking-based & community-solutions-focused K-12 school in rural Khajuraho, India, the WEschool. It will be built entirely from scratch and aims to run on a social business model in the long term.

I got involved in this project when I ran into Ulrike at the Vision Summit in Berlin. I met her two months ago in India where we met at a conference and traveled to the Taj Mahal together. I told her about about my fascination for India, and then she told me that she is building a school in Khajuraho and that she is actually looking for somebody like me to get involved. “Why don’t you come to Khajuraho and decide after seeing the place?” she said.

So two weeks later I am sitting in a plane to Delhi (right now!) and will make my way to Khajuraho. I will meet Ulrike and others from the team and we will write (more) concepts, business plans and funding strategies. It’s an adventure, and I’m very excited about it.

In order to cover some living expenses while I don’t have a steady income, I am offering freelance translations for German/English marketing texts / ad copy (hire me!).
