I have just been awarded $400 dollars through the International Outreach Granting Group:
"IOGG supports individuals engaged in activities that support international understanding, justice and peace; travel outside one's own country for purposes consistent with Friends concerns. Any project within the United States must have an international aspect to qualify." (http://www.pym.org/pm/more.php?id=1590_0_196_0_M)
This money will be primarily dedicated towards the purchase and creation of the solar charging unit so that I can re-charge my camera batteries while living in the Nicaraguan village.
Thank you to the International Outreach Granting Group!
This brings the total up to- $1120.68
Again thank you to everyone who donated! I am having another event May 1st and everything seems to be going well!
