    It is a very good idea of letting those who have the capacity to view some of the infomation available. But it is also not propoer to like that.
    Most of the times when i see browse your website, i come across the word’ PREMIUM MEMBER’, this is a very good thing but bad to some of us who need the information but have no money to afford upto that extent. There are some information which we feel to take part but upto a certain stage, we just hit the wall.
    Please help some of us who need the information to help others but have no much resources.

    Please put us into consideration.

    I am a Co-founder of Mother Mary Charity Organization based in Uganda-East Africa. The organization caters for for orphans attending Universal Primary Education, the program initiated by the Republic of Uganda. The Government only provide School fees and the rest is provided by the Parent/guardian such Meals, Uniform and Scholastic materials. The orphans get it rough by not receiving the school requirments from their guardians hence this guardian who also has more than two biological children to cater for, actually from his small income. Therefore i call upon you to support the Orphans.
    Thank You
