  • How on earth can you connect LEE to plumbing or ICT or more importantly, women? Once I had a chance to visit one of your centers, it dawned on me. Everything fits in beautifully, and the AMMACHI Labs solution is holistic. None of our UNDEF projects has ever paid so much attention to follow-ups and other non traditional events. I am going to recommend your approach to other projects as well
