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
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.
