Great work !!
And a nice report too!!

Is it possible to have some followup events for this activity. Some
women meetup every 2-3 months will be a good way to keep everyone in
touch and to have better interaction.

Congrats to all the volunteers, co-ordinators and participants for a
successful event.
Keep up the good work!!
