POWER 26 - Meet our trainers

Dear Secret Pillower, I am delighted to introduce you to Vasantha, Preethy, Angela, Santhi, Sharmila, Vasantha and Seetha. They are the first Secret Pillow Trainers. During my July trip we spent a day together and produced a training manual with the help of an interpreter. It was a magical and hopeful day. The trainers will be training another 70 women in next couple of months. They will be setting the dates for these workshops very soon. The successful Crowdfunder Campaign early this year enabled this to happen. Thank you, Fritha  Secret Pillow Project - Unfolding women's power P.s. Click here...
