Dear Divya,

Welcome to the Community Action Day group! Nice to have you with us. May I request you to share on the community wall in the CAD group with which groups you plan to facilitate the day? It will help those who are facilitating with same groups elsewhere to connect with Samraksha.

Dear Divya, that was a wonderful blog you wrote. Short, concise stories but with a message and a human touch that is admirable. Reading it in the morning, I not only learned more again about inclusion, but it will influence during today the way I interact with people.

Thank you, Gaston
