Thank you for introducing us to the work of Ousainou Jagne and Liz
Rocher. I share your letter with our Minciu Sodas laboratory's
http://www.ms.lt working group on "Learning from each other"
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/learningfromeachother/ led by Pamela
McLean. Ousainou and Liz, I invite you to join us! send a blank message
to firstname.lastname@example.org We'd love to hear
more about your projects. Our lab serves and organizes independent
thinkers around the world.
Our participant Maria Agnese Giraudo is very interested in helping with
local publishing in Africa, especially the publishing of textbooks for
primary and secondary schools. She is currently in Rusinga Island,
Kenya visiting Samwel Kongere and his colleagues. Samwel, thank you for
your wonderful news! and best wishes to Maria Agnese!
