Visit to Tamil Nadu, Chennai
Flew to Chennai and dedicated the next week in Tamil Nadu, spending some time in Auroville, an experimental socialist city which encompasses an array of social enterprises from a solar energy company that uses its profits to help train and supply solar lighting and pumps to marginal communities, to a textile company that helps tsunami victims deal with grief through spending time participating in textile working groups.

Visit to women's self-help groups
We visited many women’s self-help groups, that from my experience have been the single most powerful concept I have seen in enabling families and communities transform their livelihoods.
