Testimonials

“Thank you again for the opportunity you gave … for participating in your training on fund raising. We received a small funding last November and we were able to set up our office, and we are now updating our financial statements since 2002 as well as preparing for a workshop and the livelihood program – a good start for 2006. We hope to get more resources coming in since our funds will last up to this month only. But the early luck is really attributed to the pure and inspiring energy I got from all of you. God Bless, we will remain grateful forever.” – Trustee and founder, child services center
