OVF (Jeff) and Other MS-related activities at Onet/Ken-Sam-Andrius
- Hello Dear Jeff and All!Great to hear from you, and I still have a more detailed (and thought-filled) mail to write in response to your wonderful letters of the past 7-10 days on various subjects. Ken, Sam, and Andrius, many thanks for your mails, and to Jeff for your invaluable inputs and support! Sam, terrific WSF reports, and Ken, your WSF acct is so issue-rich that I hope to respond to it soon as well.I'm sorry to hear OVF probably will not attend the conference, but I'd love to set up spaces at O/net for our various activities: OVF, KAIPPG and GRASSUP, ActALIVE, our MS-related activities. You can actually add OVF as being "there in spirit", on the "Participants" page. I'm glad to see that David Mutua will be going, so hopefully he can report to us!How else would you like to approach this? Let me know, and I'll be more available in a couple weeks to do something (right around the time of the conference).One question for Ken: did I understand that you're interested in gathering stories for the MyFoodStory project? That would be great, and I'd love it if you could do that through Holistic Helping (and post at Social Agriculture too, the
home" for the project). You can do "quick entries" and earn some money, as I understand it. Or find more detailed information and submit "stories". Let us know when you can.With blessings, appreciation, and all best wishes, Janet

Its unlikely that OVF will be participating. However I am still interested in how we might set up a space in Omidyar.net to promote our work. I am already a member of the group but has not done much in terms of creating content within the network.

Subject: [holistichelping] Fred: reply on Global Learn Day/Onet conference: Fred and CharlesDear Fred and All,Hello and great to hear from you! I see you have been qualified to attend the Onet conference, but in the "second tier" of funding, which means that--after bursaries have been given to those outside Uganda--you will be considered. I'm not sure of the funding situation re bursaries, so can you make it there under your own resources at all, or what would you estimate you would need? And Charles, are you interested in attending? The registration should have taken place by Feb 1st, but perhaps there is still time.On your other question, I'm not sure exactly what you are referring to...do you mean you want to be active in Global Learn Day activities, or moreso at Learning (this forum), or Holistic Helping? Thanks for clarifications, and also, please tell us more abt yourself when you can (Andrius posted on this subject last week, I think, and had some good questions and suggestions for things you might discuss).With all best wishes and blessings, Janet
