Spotlight on DTW Tempest

We worked with Cambodian de-mining charity, DTW, for the Department for International Development (DfID), providing constructive consultancy in business planning to assist their development into a self-supporting organisation.

We worked with the charity, meeting with their local clients and finance providers, to develop a robust business plan that would enable them to create a sustainable venture that would survive after the engineers moved on. One example of this was cultivating a supply chain for replaceable parts within the local area.
