Thank you Guy, do have a look at the example (in italics) when you find time.

Hello Jinal. Thank you for your Project Khel idea as well. Loved the toys picture too. The need to connect with parents through whatever medium is such an important need. In our work with urban slums we have parents who proactively seek out advise on so many issues from our team members who work in the community. You are right about achieving scale through the ASHA and anganwadi workers too. However, I feel they are burdened with so many responsibility and administrative tasks that it may not be as effective as we want it to be. Also, in an urban context we have seen that they do not have as much reach and influence as they do in many rural areas. That is why we have suggested an alternate model of reaching parents using Self Help Groups which are prevalent in most urban low-income communities where we work due to the intervention of the Government, NGOs and micro-finance instituitions.

Thank you so much for your suggestion and example link. Will work on it.
