    Thank you family for such a great opportunity, first of all my name is Abukari Shaibu Niendow, Founder of an organization call SEDARVP GHANA, in the northern part of Ghana, I recently came out with a project call EMPOWERING OUR WOMEN THROUGH IRRIGATION FARMING, many women have expres interest in these project, but we do not know which institution or body to contact for funding, unlike most organizations which try to empower our poor mothers and many school drop out by giving them micro loans, mothers who do have even know which trade or business to do ends up misusing such funds, but with these, our poor mothers are willing to go into farming, its there a way my organization can apply for such a grant? Thank you all.
