    Dear sir. I am running an ngo named solidarity foundation working in Bangladesh in education sector particularly for the street urchin. Due to lack of fund ,the program is being hindered.It is the matter of great regret that donors are funding mostly to the big ngos but the small ngos like ours are not mostly getting fund despite having experience and management capacity.I earnestly request all funding agencies to support us.

    I have a project I have been working on for about 5 years not as an NGO but as an individual by sponsoring young girls and boys through payment of school fees and distribution of school materials to enable them to acquire an education,and i give stipends to young mothers between the ages of 14-18 who got married at a tender age to start up a little business which usually is selling of either fruits or vegetables to be able to sustain themselves and their families in rural Gunga village and some urban slums in the Jos-North local Government Area of plateau State.
    .There are also children who are orphans who have lost either one or both parents in the Jos crisis or through HIV/AIDS and are forced to droped out of school to either hawk on the streets or become house helps for lack of sponsorship.I will very much appreciate the kind assistance or partnership from the International Funds for cultural Diversity-UNESCO-for NGOs,so we can together give a meaning to the lives of these children and for a better future for them.

    Thank you

    Tara Yusuf
