Network Meeting – Books that Inspire Our Work

We had another well-attended meeting on 24th April, 2013. It was so nice to catch up with everyone and share some good conversations over coffee and lunch.

Our discussion centered around books that have inspired us. Each attendee interpreted the “topic” in a slightly different way, which made for a great discussion and sharing of ideas!

Thank you so much to everyone who attended. The work you do is truly an inspiration and you are each making a difference – one child at a time!
