Need Help: Getting on the same page

A couple of days ago I posted some information about a group of dedicated volunteers working on providing intellectual resources for planned and organized relief and re-construction efforts in Sri Lanka. Their work is reported and coordinated through the website GeoLanka.net(http://149.166.110.235/geosrilanka/). We have contacted them and are currently working out the details on how we should pool all our resources together and work towards a common goal of grass-root development, poverty alleviation and post-Tsunami relief and reconstruction. We are sure there are many other individuals and groups working on similar ideas. To make all these efforts more effective and coordinated we feel that it is important to get them all on the same page. As a first step towards this we are currently collecting a list of such organizations and people and their contact details. Hence it will be a great help if you could make available this information to any body that is interested and would let us know of their contact details or websites. You can mail these details to me at mugalan@gmail.com. We appreciate your interest in serving the people of Sri Lanka.
