Marika commented on Parenting a midst daily challenges

Love this, thanks so much for sharing Rosemary! Many of the Global Conversations posts from Tanzania and India have also focused on different aspects of your five pillars. One focuses specifically on the importance of finding fun and engaging ways to reframe learning, and mentions a very popular program in India that Galli Galli Sim Sim (the Indian Sesame Street) has launched. Check it out!

One other thing that several participants mentioned in their posts was the importance of the role of fathers in raising healthy children. You didn't call this out specifically, but I imagine that it's an issue you deal with at Plan. Here's one of the Global Conversations posts on this topic:

Marika commented on Understanding the Power of Shame

Hi Brad, thanks for sharing! I love these ideas from Bogota - I'm super curious to know how much the "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" signs were used in everyday life. And the idea of calling the city to report good drivers is simple and powerful. How might we create a rating system for taxi and rickshaw drivers in places like Delhi as a way to collectively select for better behavior?
