When Sabine Scheppe from Janssen, Germany heard about the Secondment Program, she knew that this was something she want to do. An opportunity to engage in something totally different, with positive impact on underprivileged children, mothers and families. She knew that to work in a social project and to live in a foreign culture would develop her own personal and professional growth. Sabine’s role was to support a change management process and to support a new business strategy with the goal to change the Madrasa Early Childhood Programme into a fully self-sufficient social enterprise.
During her secondment, Sabine conducted comprehensive research with over 100 in-depth interviews with mothers, teachers, community workers, NGOs, government representatives and university professors. As a result of the findings, she developed strategic options with recommendations for the future.
