We look forward to settling down more fully in India and carrying out all of AWRC’s visions and goals to the full extent possible in the coming months and years.

My personal thanks to the Working Group, the Outgoing and Acting Coordinators, the staff of AWRC office in Jogja and the Local Support Group of AWRC in India for the unstinting support during this period of transition. My personal thanks also to all of our funding partners for your patience with the transition.
