This is amazing, @aisha. Thanks for always representing us very well: and
we know you had a nice outing too.

Now, around the logistics, I wouldn't mind begging along side @aisha in
this regard too. If anyone is able to help, anyone, please let us know. If
it comes to light, I know many more people would be able to learn to code.
