Following the WAFRIC conference, life had to continue.
However it was incredibly difficult, the board were overjoyed with the success of the conference but there was a massive divide following the fact that I had to host it alone.
The concensus was that the majority of the board would have to resign as we had made a variety of offers to keep the flag flying without success. WAFRIC is now without the main members of the board which is sad; but out of bad must come good. A new organisation for ladies is due to be formed to continue the work that had already been started.
On a personal level I had put so much work into the organisation, in my own time conferring with stakeholders; my own business suffered. Struggling for a number of weeks, I finally decided to sub-contract in Algeria to save my business.
The glass is always half full and it was a close call! I managed to get an Algerian visa in a morning & a week later I was flying to Algiers as a consultant in aviation training.
