      Congratulations and good luck! I Hope you address in your work the immense problems of women and girls in Sierra Leone, who are still suffering unnecessarily with death and lifelong diseases from genital cutting/sowing (still 95% there?), and every 8.woman is dying therefore afterwords during childbirth, I couldn't imagine a worse torture, and it is done to younger and younger girls. Please educate your folks about this and keep your girls happy, strong and alive!

      I dreamed about those kids last night (which is odd in itself), and it was so close to the goal… How could I not help? Just like everyone else here. :)
