Good question!

Hi Tina,

I am not affiliated with this program, just heard about it and thought that World Pulse community members from these regions might be interested in this great opportunity. So unfortunately, I cannot answer your question about which regions were selected for participation and why.

There are some other great opportunities which include applications from West African countries, listed in the Resource Exchange. Check them out! Hopefully there are some that spark your interest.

Warm regards,

Dear Jade,

When will this opportunity come for us in India????
