    Thanks for for all these amazing information. We have an ngo running for the children, the less privileged, in the community here in Nigeria and we’ve been doing all of the project with our own little finance. Permit me to say we would appreciate various philanthropists that could also contribute whatever little contribution from them. And if their are any other avenues to get fundings pls kindly notify us ….
