Dear Sis Ana, I shall and will. In my experience it has been extremely difficult to find a grant to build anything structural for education, resource center , etc as in my case for women and girls with all of the requirements that is needed.
Thanks for your efforts in getting the resources to us all. We're hopeful!
sincerely and blessings to you.
