  1. Linda: It was great meeting with you and the Plan team last week. I'm happy to see that we're on the same page with respect to the need to put people first when designing technology-based (or any, actually) aid projects.

    My colleagues and I stand ready to support you and yours however we can, and we're looking forward to it!

  2. Michael - same for me! I'm really excited to take our ideas forward.
