It takes time, lots of researches to make connection with early childhood professionals. I wanted to make connection with Early Childhood Professionals Internationally, but some of the professionals that I wanted to make connections email lists were not upto date, so I chose the alternative choice.
I chose Global Fund for Children: An organization, which provides capital to communities worldwide to improve the lives of children. I always wonder how non-profit organization works and where do they get their fund and people working for these organizations. So, I started by listening to an interview by Maya Ajmera and Victoria Dunning. After listening to Maya Ajmera and her story about going into this field, I am able to relate a lot to her since her expertise and grassroots movement started from Southeast Asian Countries like India, Nepal, Bhutan…Later I researched about Maya Ajmera and found her website, which allowed me to email her. This is her website http://www.mayaajmera.com/
Hopefully, I would get hold of her and get an opportunity to learn about different early childhood issues and trends.
While going through different early childhood resources websites, I found difficult to choose one. But keeping in my goal, dream, and future plan, I chose the National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies. In near future, I want to open my own child care center in our community in Queens, New York, focusing on immigrant families, I thought this would be a great resource for me learn more about child care resource and referral agencies.
