    Omam Esther says: After the good advise provided to us by Silla, we tried KIVA and Oikocredit but discovered that they dealt only with organisation having so many beneficiaries to the number of 1000 and above. We have not reached that number, that is why we request that you help redirect us to other partners who can collaborate with smaller initiatives such as ours.
    On the other hand, we could not contact globalgiving because by that time we had just submitted another proposal through the challenge which we later won and are now member.
    Thank you for your continued support
