Personal report from Florindo Sales De Araujo about the “Water solution workshop” held on November 2016 by Scope Asia Timor LDA and Timor Foundation
My name is Florindo Sales De Araujo and I’m from Atauro Isand. I’m going to be one of the technical staff members for the Water project in Atauro Island. At the moment I am working as a volunteer for Scope Asia Timor LDA, being trained in the maintenance of different water project locations.
We are working with Trunz Water Systems solutions (Switzerland), exclusive provider for Timor Leste in locations like Oe-cusse, Dili Canossa Comoro, Atauro Island, etc.
I’m very glad that we got the opportunity to participate to the one-week Workshop for water solution project with Trunz Water Systems. The workshop was organized and lead by Barbara Lietz, the president of Scope Asia Switzerland and CEO of Scope Asia Timor LDA. The practical training during these days was supported by the very well experienced team of Januario Carvaloh and Dahlia Bernardo Guterres, and by Barbara Lietz who gave me and the other participants a very good platform to get important knowledge in different sectors, which I can take in my practical daily work.
We learned to organize the daily work in a water shop, regarding administration, logistics, marketing and business parts, and all the hygiene aspects which are important especially in the area of production. We realized and were impressed by how important teamwork can be and how to work with different tasks in a team.
The Workshop shows on the other hand, how to deal and communicate with different people and characters successfully. We realize how important communication can be. Especially in the daily work, it is relevant to have a clear communication, clear structure rules, a transparent way of working process and a good functional and trustworthy team.
We enjoyed and were impressed to be a part of this important workshop. I am sure it will help all of us to build up a really successful water location shop. We are looking forward to the next steps to get more and more practice in different areas especially in the pre-opening phase, where the team and Mrs. Barbara Lietz will be again our training partners.
My special thanks for all these opportunities which we got in the last months to H.E. Dr. Mari Alkatiri, President of ZEEMS, his trust in the system provided by Trunz Water systems and Scope Asia AG, Switzerland. He gave us the chance for this first step and H.E. is the reason why we are all had this big opportunity. During September 2016, we had our first training at Trunz Water System, in Switzerland. We are so thankful we had the chance to work with the people of Trunz water systems.
Mrs. Andrea Trunz was our training and coaching partner during those days. Mr. Barbara Lietz and the partners from Scope Asia AG, Asia Connect Centre at the University St. Gallen, took the responsibility for us in Switzerland and we learned in different steps the maintenance of the machines by Trunz water systems as well as a short training for Bag-in-Box, the packing system from SCOPE ASIA Switzerland.
We appreciate the support from all partners from SCOPE ASIA AG Switzerland and wish to get more and more knowledge to be and to work successfully in our Water locations in Timor Leste.
