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:

Thanks for your post Saranya! These insights are super interesting, and are very in line with some of the comments we heard from the groups posting through our Global Conversations project in rural India and Tanzania.

Thanks for this Shane, this is great! I love the idea of hairstylists as counselors.
