Q&A

DEAR NEW FARM:

I coordinate a faith-based NGO in Guyana, South America. We are interested in support for an agricultural project targeting single female parents. How do we approach your organization? The project is geared for sustainable livelihood, to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS by providing for women who for survival would prostitute themselves and to support children to go back to school.

Looking forward to your response,
Rev. Renis Morian

 

DEAR REVEREND:

The Rodale Institute is an NGO, a non-governmental not-for-profit organization, specialized in providing training and technical assistance in our international work. We do this though grants that we receive from donor institutions and private foundations. If your organization can gain access to funding, we will be glad to explore how the Institute can provide you with the technical assistance you need. We could also explore jointly funding opportunities, but it will be essential that we have the means to contact a fact-finding mission in Guyana, where we can identify together what needs to be done, from an agricultural standpoint, to improve livelihoods in the communities you are trying to serve.

Please let us know what possibilities exist, and we will be glad to assist.

Best regards,
Amadou Diop
International Programs Director
The Rodale Institute
