    Hi!, im writing from South Sudan, the small fund for Children is real very important to change the life of the South Sudanese Children and i was surprised to see that South Sudan is not included on the list of countries that are supposed to benefit from this fund. May i know the selection criteria. Is there special consideration to accept proposals from South Sudan.

    Hello Reena,
    i am from Cameroon. my small organisation focuses on training children and youths on good waste management practices. We also produce waste management guides for them this help prevent diseases arising from poor practices. We really need funds for this but we are not in the list of priority countries. What then should we do if we must get help. Thank you for your response in advance and God bless you.
