Stephen’s Farewell Party

We held Stephen's farewell party on Saturday night, and various representatives from local NGOs and government stood up and described how much they enjoyed working with Stephen over the past years, and also what they've learnt from him. Stephen tried to hide a tear or two, but we noticed :) Stephen proudly displaying a portrait drawn by Programme Coordinator, Pak Hudi
