We really enjoyed editing and contributing to this latest edition of SaltSeller. Murray and Janet (Founders) had an excellent time visiting to our partners in Tamil Nadu in January and this issue brings lots of news about how well our money is being spent.

 Our lead story is Janet's article on the very promising advances in the development of women since our visit last year and on page five and six I write about the health project at Crusade which is bringing health care to thousands in outlying villages.

Lena, our new Development Manager, introduces herself on Page 3. She has grown up with the charity, has already visited India and is very well placed to bring her unique talents to further our work.

Lena also mentions the 2020 Supporters visit. There are up to 6 places left so if any of you are interested in this well established and worthwhile experience please see the details on the website and contact Lena lena@sote.org.uk

India has just concluded a nation wide election in which the sitting Prime Minister, Mr Modi, has been returned with an increased majority. It remains to be seen if this victory will result  in any meaningful benefit to the hundreds of millions rural poor who have not yet shared equally in the country's development.

We have just heard that Jothi Ramalingham, the CEO of CRUSADE, will be staying with us here in Leicester for a few days in September.  We are organising a vegetarian indian meal on Thursday evening 12th September where supporters will have an opportunity to meet him. We will be posting full details by email and on the website shortly.

 It only remains for me to once again thank you for your support and encouragement without which we could do nothing.
