Thank you for your email!

Harison,

Greetings! I just received your letter of thanks. Thank YOU for taking the time to reach out personally and share more about your project.

Unfortunately I am not able to fill your request personally, but would love to support your efforts in any way I can online. Here are a few questions to get you started.

Do you have a website? I ask because people want to know who an organization is before they give their time or money. If not, no worries! Do you partner with other organizations that know your work, that are possibly located in the States or Europe?
Are donations to your organization tax-deductible?

I am posting the link to your other post that describes your organization. http://beta.pulsewire.net/node/2135
It sounds like you have discovered a sustainable source of income for many by collecting sand. Do you have any picture of your work?

Let's keep talking via PulseWire to see if we can come up with a proposal that other community members will want to support!
Jennifer

Interesting!

I wish you all the best with finding the necessary resources for the Ngege Sand Collectors Co-operative Society. Can you share with us more about the sand harvesting project? How does it work? How many people are involved? How do you access the sand deposits and who do you sell the sand to? I'm very interested in the process!

Best wishes,

Lisa
