Here are some proposed projects that we would like to partner with you as international partner: (please see the attachments for more details)
 
1. Cooking for Life -

The project calls for the renovation, purchase and installation of cooking equipment in an institution for abused women and girls called Marillac Hills, a government run institution badly in need of assistance from the private sector.
Abused women and girls are housed in the institution which provides education, and with the proposed project,  giving them the necessary cooking skills and providing  them dignity and confidence in preparation for their eventual release from the institution.
