This is a group of grandmothers all over the UK who log on once a week to Skype with youngsters in India, and take on that appraising role that all grannies do so well, to tell stories and to stimulate fresh ideas.
Hi Meena, thanks! I learned a lot through OpenIDEO and from you, in particular. I remember how you reinforced the power of local communities in the maternity challenge. I also remember how you said that it is essential to design/create "with the people" and not "for them". This stuck with me for a very long time and I will always remember that very, very powerful truth in almost every venue of my professional and private life. BIG THANK YOU!
