  5. Thank you very much for this global concern in funding programs globally. We feel it is really contributing to active globalization of mankind. We are interested to apply but we are not members of Nexus.
    We have been working with an NGO founded by people (Americans and Kenyans) who studied and worked in America. When they came to Kenya they mobilized our efforts towards working together in meeting sustainable development goals and we appreciated their actions.
    Now we are very ready to work with them in making a joint application and we would like to request them to partner with us in applying for this grants. How can an applicant apply to be a member of nexus grants. Please advice us on how to be a member of the nexus grants.
    Thank you
