    It may as well be initiated an environment, youth-led and gender equity project in the north eat India where a large part of the virgin forest is cut down every year, and where women are the worst sufferers. a small project can set off a great process for social change and mitigation of climate change and bio-diversity conservation.
    WE are wiling to partner with a nyy small or big organization in climate change and bio-diversity conservation and Gender equality program in North East India.

    Our Organization- NENBUIMA COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATION SIERRA LEONE WEST AFRICA- NeCDOSL is non-profit making registered voluntary organization working for the cause of downtrodden and suppressed persons without any discrimination of caste, creed, religion and gender etc. At present we are working in the areas of disability, community development, rural development, women and child rights, Traditional irrigation sources, natural resource management etc. Our target groups are women empowerment, education for especially children, water and sanitation farmers, landless migrants, small and marginal farmers etc. We have done so many splendid works for the disabled persons by distributing artificial limbs, tricycle, crèche, wheel chair, caliper, hearing aid, walking stick and blind stick etc. We mobilize them to become self reliance. In this connection we are running a vocational training center for handicapped persons to make them capable to get the jobs to live with dignity and self reliance.
    We have already implemented various development programs successfully. Many of them are still in progress. We involve local community in planning process , design , implementation followed by constant monitoring and evaluation to make the programme sustainable and replicable. Due to our progammes and strategic plan the local people are supporting us on every front. They contribute us with cash, kind and materials. Peoples are our asset .We realizes that these people should be developed in such a way so that they could raise their voices for entitklements of socio-economic, cultural and political rights to live with dignity and self reliance.
    Our management is sound having been dedicated personnel with grass root level workers to intervene in any development programmes effectively with module of sustainability.
    For the past years, we have been finding so difficult to have funds for the various activities and we assure you that, if your organisation will support us we develop a module project for the expansion and proper implementation of our organisation.

    Hope u will consider our application and will write us for the same, so that, we could develop a detailed project proposal for providing support. I would be grateful if you will send me your guideline for the funding and hope my counrty Sierra Leone will be included

    With warm regards
