Dear sister Ana
I am Ni Ni Aye from Myanmar and have been working for the Girls' empowerment with or without other women rights organizations since 2010. My last project was ' Girls to be Engineers ' which has been promoting girls in a Buddhist Nun's led school in Yangon. in two years the project could help 8 girls studying in Poly Technic School in Yangon and they are learning different engineering subjects. I think this opportunity would be a help to extend the project led by those girls and also a support those girls' need in their study.
If my idea sounds eligible, I would like to know how much is the funding and how it should be used for to support the girls. Can I recruit a couple of women to support their particular need?
Thank you so much for your kind support and I will be very grateful if you can reply before the deadline.
With Gratitude
Ni Ni Aye
