Fingers tightly crossed

We have been on the look out for committed funding opportunities and grants.  A quick update on the status of various funding opportunities that we applied for:

Echoing Green

The most competitive fellowship where more than 100 applicants are filtered down to less than 12 grants awarded every year. One of our mentors, Mr C V Madhukar is a Echoing Green 2005 fellow. His organization Parliamentary Research Service (PRS) is an independent, not-for-profit initiative that seeks to promote wider debate on upcoming legislative issues in Parliament.

We will keep trying.

Youth Social Enterprise Initiative 

We recently applied for the YSEI fellowship. ProGreen is seeking funding to initiate the rural BPO cooperative.

Well, the good news is that we are through to the final round. We are there with 30 odd finalists from the Asia Pac region. All we can do now is to keep our fingers crossed!
