Its great to have you here. Well to start with I
would like to thank you for your willingness to help.
What Cochin needs at this time are ideas for
1. Fundraising and
2. Training metods
3. Experts to be invited to the village
Any ideas that you may have can be posted on the site .Please introduce yourself to the rest of the neighbors and if you have any suggestions from these discussions, feel
free to leave a message.
In the event that a special project arises and you wish to assist it will be posted at the village.
Surely take some time time to view the presentation for Shilpa in the documents section. It will update you with the organisation.
I am glad to handover the facilitator role to Karen. Thanks Karen :-)
I would not be able to facilitate any longer since my MBA studies are extremely time consuming and don't allow me to contribute as much as I want to.
All the Best
Today I had a course in Gouda, a city in the Netherlands famous for its cheese.
The course was about writing for metally disabled people. In the Netherlands the readability of texts is a problem. Some people cannot read, and for those who can information is to complicated and not adjusted to their needs. Often they don't understand their mail.
So we discussed and practised how to make accesible information for mentally challenged people. For example using picto's (visual symbols) for mentally challenged people.
Has any of you similar experiences or simply something to share something with neighbours? You are welcome to it.
We just had a seminar / discussion on Behavioural problems in the mentally disabled last evening and more than 100 parents from diff parts of our district attended. Expert psyciatrists , social workers, clinical psychologist added their views. It was pointed out that mostly sexual exploitation was done by close relatives and friends and parents are to be extra careful to avoid this. The interactions were active, I have posted a few snaps of the seminar in photo section
Nice to know what you have done. Maybe an idea to tell something about your work every week?
Some other ideas:
- The photo's in the photogallery are nice but it would be even nicer to add text to the photo's as well. So the neighbours of Cochin know what children and employees they are seeing and what is done for them in Cochin or what they are doing specifically for the children. Let me know how you think about this.
more about the children of Chochin
-maybe you could tell something more about the children of Cochin? How they are doing and so on.
I am Anand Koti joined cochin village.
Looking forward to know everyone and work together.
On behalf of the neighbours of Cochin, welcome!

Dear Dr. Premila,

Please email me more information.
All the best.
Tks a lot for being a neighbour of Shilpa. U can get some more details of us at www.shilpasociety.org
i am still trying figure out how things work here. I had started as a member at naabur.com when i was in beijing but since then, i've been travelling and that's taken a chunk of my time. Now that i am back in London, i can really look forward to making some contribution.
It would greatly help if someone could tell me briefly tell me the latest and what the projects are and I can try and add to it.
getting used to the way things work here. would like more information on the work so that i can contribute constructively
Welcome to the village of Cochin! If you have a specific question about Cochin please let me know.
For instance, do you want to know more about Nabuur, Cochin or something else?
I would be happy to answer your questions.

Dear Praveen Ohal,
I didn't know Edmee personally. Also I don't know about the circumstances in which Edmee was asked to quit. So, I cannot say anything about it.
I hope however that this matter will be resolved to the satisfaction of all local representatives. Because you were working mostly with Edmee and will work with her successor.
Dear Praveen & others,
I think its time now to rethink. Of course Nabuur needs people like Edmee who have contributed a lot to what it is today. But we must not forget that we should all think of Nabuur as an organisation and must whole heartedly support the team members whoever they are. Lets not fight and bring up controversies like injustice to women.
It is my humble appeal to all
