Episode #0001 (Dan Philips - Nika Project)
Welcome to the first podcast of Lotus & Bananas: A podcast by PicSeePal and We Speak AAC. In this episode, Brandi and Chris sit down with Dan Philips, founder and director of the Tech Resource Center Marin, providing AAC and AT to over 19 school districts in California. Dan discusses a life-altering experience in South Africa that led to co-founding the Nika Project which Chris describes as a “global empire of goodness.” Dan explains the project as a non-profit that “takes tools we were throwing away in the US” to help make an “impactful difference” through “building relationships of trust, transparency, and collaboration around the globe.”
