Dear Donors,

This project has nothing much to report on, due to the very fact that there are no funds to continue its activities. We are appealing for support, so we can be able to continue working on the various activities of this project.

There is actually a growing demand for this project to continue its work but since there is no available resource we cannot achieve this. We cannot achieve this all by ourselves but with your support it can be achieved.

Based on the above, we are calling on GlobalGiving and donors to help us achieve this together.
