Kumar: Below are a list of ideas that might be useful when you are looking out for new projects to do. It means going to places and taking photos and getting information and trying to work out costs, so that we can put it on the SHIVA website.
Remember that we are also waiting for.
1) Child sponsorship photos from Nuffield.
2) Photos from Vijay in Ampara which SHOW LESSONS FROM THE FIRST BOOKLET
3) Photos/ video from SHIVA Preschool showing work from the booklet.
4) Some information from the sewing ladies about the educational  items we showed to them. Can they produce any of them. What will they cost?
