  1. I am a grants officer responsible for the resources mobilsation for the faith based NGO working on the humanitarian relief and development in Malawi-Churches Action in Relief and development (CARD). One aspect most intriguing is the plight of the challenged persons amongst the communities.
    We would like to try link the challenged persons to the market but with a product that normally made by other bigger organizations and would want to ship the production unit from main stream organization department to be done by the challenged persons hence wants to try and find out its effectiveness. The crop or product we are trying is cotton for the making of yarn for a weaving industry. May we therefore be assisted by having tools to apply for this to fulfill the dream
