More families are acquiring smart phones, and beginning to use social media. With all its pitfalls, this gives us opportunities to network with the families. At these meetings parents were encouraged to look at Project Mala’s social media accounts, if they are able to access them, and find out how we are viewed in the wider world. We are aware that internet access is soon going to become universal, even in these remote villages, and the staff are there to guide pupils and their parents as they navigate the new worlds the internet opens up to them.
