Very quick little update… I’m sitting in a wonderful coffee shop in Colombo being VERY productive. I think this may be the key to my research efficiency… get out of the house and away from the usual distractions and it’s easier to focus for long periods at a time.
I’m flying to Kolkata, India (formerly Calcutta) for the week starting tomorrow to research a few other organizations with comparable programs (art therapy+education+income generation) and many, many years of experience behind them. I will also look into bead/finding sourcing if I have spare time. I’m actually very excited for this trip… initially I wasn’t too keen, but have learned so much about these organizations and their incredible work, I can’t wait!
Apologies for the shortest blog entry ever, but can’t stop researching, I’m on a roll!
