yes some of us are familiar with them and there are an extra 2 childboards from 2 + years ago, in the our forum for their conference news and up dates, and presume they will not be using. They are now funded by the Japan Foundation. Focus information is on their website:

The ever charming Diana Larowe (Phoenix Friendship Garden) is the current exec director & their next 'everybody attends' (rather than Regional meetings), national international conference will be in Denver October 11/12, 2012.
And there is a current call for papers for that conference.
