Lyn Speaking of Africa and women there is no reason we can not inroduce in home carers for the elderly while they complete their education here. On occashions perhaps a child could also travel with the mother to be educated here as well. This can be done on a 1 to 2 to 5 years visa with the support of the Federal Goverment by way of contract. We need in home carers for our elderly as the state Goverments continue to rip off the funding sent by the federal goverment for this purpose. The average amount alotted is 30 dollars a day for in home care to those who chose to stay living in the own home for as long as possible. That should provide two hours a day. Many are lucky to get three hours a week. Also as well helping the women of Africa keep the demands for nursing homes down as well. I have already discussed this with federal P and the adviser who were most interested so perhaps you can get something statred for the women in Africa and our elderly. I hope so and think if any body can its probably going to be you.Best wishes for 2006
