Hi everyone! I just wanted to post a quick note letting you know that in the next few months I will hopefully be applying for the “Peace Corps Partnership Program” whereby I can submit project proposals, which then get posted online, and request donations. The way this works is I come up with a budget for the project in which my community must be willing to give 25% (to ensure they are really invested in the idea and not just going to request as much money as possible), and then a description goes up online and you can donate! These are for small-scale projects (couple thousand U.S. dollars or less) and processing usually takes several weeks to several months. I am floating a number of ideas around with my work partners right now, and I just wanted to give you a heads up. SO… if you were thinking about sending me a package, that’s very kind, but INSTEAD, save the cash and get ready to donate in the next couple months (things happen more slowly here).
That’s all :)
