Expert in: engineering

I believe in alleviating poverty through the sharing of knowledge and experience. To realise this aspiration, I support Women on Wings in the Sanitary Pads program with my expertise as an Engineer. I especially want to contribute in creating sustainable solutions that supports the program.

My two teenage daughters grow up in a very promising society. The prospects they have in education, work and development, I wish every child to have.

Women on Wings gives me the opportunity to bring my ideas into practice and to gain interaction with people in their dynamic and complex society myself.

During the first phase of the Sanitary Pads program, especially during my work visit in India, I have learned that a successful exchange of knowledge and expertise is strongly connected with mutual respect and trust. I am very happy that I can share this experience with my daughters.
