    Dear all. I just came across your web page. We have an NGO in Kenya called Inside Out Learning which runs an educational program dedicated to improving the quality of teaching while addressing specific educational requirements that extend beyond preparing children for examination. The educational program focuses on preparing children for the complex challenges of life which includes skills necessary to help them earn a living, raise a family and build a community. The key objective of the program is to produce innovative, productive, self reliant, morally strong, capable, contributing citizens of the world who are ready to change inside out. We have established a strong presence in Kenya combined with years worth of experience, working with primary school teachers and administrators.
    Our resources are meager hence I got interested in your grant offer which would help us develop mechanism for reaching a wider area. This will in effect meet our objective. It seems like your dateline for applications is overdue and I was wondering if you could consider us within your funding program. You may reach us in the email provided.
    Thank you kindly and may your worthy endeavors attains immense results.

    Sincerely,

    Aggrey Mushira
