The second half of 2008 to-date, Emang Basadi (EB) has experienced a very dry period in terms of donor funding. This could be attributed or related to the current global economic recession. Although applications for funding to possible donors have been made, nothing tangible has yet come through, thus reducing the number of activities carried out during this period. It is from this background that EB is intensifying its drive for resource mobilizing for projects, through this website.
