    Dear Sir,
    You have selected a most important subject to work upon in conflict hit areas.Unfortunately in Pakistan we started an NGO to work for the welfare of orphans and widows having an exclusive team of young professional doctors and some other specialists .
    You will be astonished to know that inspite of our best experienced team and most genuine proposals non of international donors like Care International , UNDP ,World vision and others did not accommodate us and they are funding to older NGOs having no specialists or youth and as usual working on old lines of funding.
    This is quite sad and international donors must draw a fixed line ratio for encouraging encouraging youth. The mere objection that the NGO must be registered more than five years ago makes no sense. I do not insist that these youth NGOs should be granted huge funds but depriving them from entering into humanitarian services is surely an evil which surely need immediate attention.
    As a result of such discrimination the youth discontinued their activities for lack of fund and now jobless.
