Sean commented on Samagra (समग्र)

Hi Swapnil – really enjoyed your personal testimony, and explanations of the Samagra model.

What you have achieved is fantastic and is an inspiring example for our #CommPlumbing initiative: the kind of design impact we would like to shape our programme to deliver, and aspire to. If we can support what you are doing, or work together to help you, just let us know!

Best wishes,
Seán

Hi Shazar – thank you for your reply, and my apologies for taking so long to get back to you.

Along with the points you make in the video above, what you are describing really resonates with issues our team are working through and learning about.

Exploring this Challenge platform over the past few weeks has been pretty inspiring for this reason, hearing and taking onboard first-hand experiences of others who are out there doing critical work usually with little credit or fanfare. From our side, and for effective and meaningful development of our particular programme, we also believe that working together with other partners is the way to go. We are hoping to adapt the #CommPlumbing initiative to serve some of the other projects that have emerged via this Challenge, so hope we can follow you and Sikandar's progress and continue a discussion if you want. 

Best wishes, and good luck to you both.
Seán
