During his 4 month fellowship he learnt about many strategies, which are not available in Sri Lanka, for working with disabled people. He was particularly interested in animal therapy, new ways of supporting autistic and hyperactive children and accessibility for people who are wheelchair bound. It was an opportunity to network with fellows from other countries, attend trainings and interact with local communities. He was invited to give a presentation about ECSAT to WID and the University of Berkeley in California.
Roshan returned in December and thanks his staff for their professional conduct during his absence and their commitment to continuing with the ECSAT projects. They all took on new responsibilities.
Special thanks are due to our Administrator Ayesha who worked up to four days before her baby boy was born. Congratulations to mother and baby. Also Roshan expresses his sincere gratitude Gina Graham – Trustee of FOE UK - who supported with staff on a day to day basis to continue the work in a very professional way.
