Dear all,

I find the word thank you not exhaustive enough for the wonderful work you have done for me during this period of three months, but I will try to elaborate it more.
I first of all thank the STIMULATE Steering committee for selecting me among the many applicants, and for the state of the art lectures they have delivered to me, for sure I am well prepared to make a difference at home!
And for VLIR, surely words are not enough to describe your generosity to me! you have given me an all round package which is very hard to find elsewhere in just three months!
You blessed my Passport with a powerful Visa.
Through you I have gained a wonderful network of friends.
I now have numerable professional consultants (Professors).
I have exposure to Ultra-modernity in the Western world.
All this has added value to my career and my life will never be the same again.
Thank you very much for your efforts and support.

Yours Sincerely

Douglas Kelly Kitenda

October-December 22, 2010 went so fast, some never noticed, some never bothered ... from the beginning and some have always been counting the days since the beginning.
STIMULATE 10 shall remain one of the most memorable thing I have experienced.
The stay in Brussels (Belgium) and trip to Paris embellished the experience.
My grateful thanks to VLIR, the STIM10 Professors, Prof Paul Nieuwenhuysen for giving me the chance to participate in STIMULATE 10 (last in this ITP series) and Ms Geraldine Huybrechts and Prof Raf Dekeyser for giving me the assistance needed prior and during the training.
Things learned in this training is immeasurable.
