2009Q3 Call for Grants Proposals

I wish to find out whether the grants are open for application to people, communities and projects in Africa, especially Zambia.

Dear Pearson,

It is OK, but with a major caveat. We can usually only send wire transfers to "western" countries. For any other country we will issue payment by US dollar check drawn from a US bank and sent via airmail. This can sometimes create problems for the recipient because it shifts the burden of currency exchange to them (if the local bank will even accept the check) and the local mail system may not be reliable. We can work with the grantee if they have an alternate preferred payment system, but it will delay the payment and any additional costs will need to be subtracted from the grant amount.

Hope this clarifies your doubt.
Best regards,
