  • Good day
    my name is Lyle I am from Cape Town South Africa and I am a politics and business administration student I think that would be sufficient information about me for now.

    question, how do we structure proposals to bigger organisations and companies to help them with a specific cause? say I want to reach a few do I make 1 generic proposal or do I make specially tailored letters to each organisation?

    no I do not have any experience I am busy setting up the foundation for an organisation that I want to start when I get back home.

    I am a ardent Pan Africanist and as such issues such as violence against woman and children, xenophobia and education are high on my list of causes, I am also busy traveling around Africa, this is my 4th month of travel, observing cultural and societal norms and differences in different African states as well as working with local business and NGO start ups.

    I think that pretty much covers it.

    thank you.
