my name is Christine and I live in Frankfurt, Germany.
I have been working with Deutsche Bahn since 2007 and decided to take sabbatical leave for 4 months in 2016. I am very grateful that my employer supported this time off from work and gave me the opportunity to recharge and refine myself.
I spent my sabbatical leave in Mayana, Namibia, where I engaged in a social project with the non-profit organization Make Change Possible.
Since I wanted to make sure to be part of a professional and sustainable project, I chose Manager für Menschen for placing me in a project. The organization has been recruiting and placing professionals as interim advisers in social projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America since 2011.
After my time as an interim adviser in Mayana, I travelled around Southern Africa from Cape Town, South Africa to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for 6 weeks.
I really enjoyed my sabbatical and my 117 days in Southern Africa and hope you’ll enjoy reading about my adventures!
