  1. Hi, I believe you might have had good discussions and observation, please do include more details about the projects you have visited may be in the reports you are planning to upload next. It would be great if you can look at question like; ‘why have they started’ ‘what are the activities’ ‘how do they sustain’ ‘what are the challenges’ what are their opportunities’ etc. there are many more questions like these to be understood and reflected upon, finding all these will definitely help in better understanding. Good effort, keep learning. thank you.
