The first iteration of the village

Dear friends/donors.

I was working in Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology and they kindly allowed me to run an entire course on making an iteration of the village.

While the obstacles of land and money and registrations of various kinds remain, iteration goes on.

The great gain made by this course was twenty five students were both made aware/conscientized of/about autism and empowered to help in small or great way with it in the future. This I consider a great gain.

The entire work done by the students can be seen as a first precious iteration of the village  and is documented here

The blog contains many things but is worth persuing at length.

Due to personal  financial needs connected to my autistic son I am going off to Saudi Arabia on a one year contract as an Assistant Professor, God willing, in a Ministry of Education University and this may help me make contacts there and bring in more funds.

The work will not stop but go forward steadily. I understand persistence, patience and perseverance are the virtues needed. 

Meanwhile I am now acquainted with the entire autism community in Banglaore now and have good rapport with them,

Please keep me and my family in your good wishes and thanks for your continued and steady support to the project.

Thanks repeatedly to all of you, especially the donors who give recurring donations.

Thanks to Michele Baron and GlobalGiving for all the help.
