Recently I decided to register "Ekegusii Encyclopedic Projects" as a Community Based Organization with the Government, whose objectives are part of the brief.
Technically I have been working alone, using my own limited resources, although some volunteers have been assisting with data collection. I am paying a clerk/typist to compile data. The office needs to accommodate 10-15 people so that conferencing is possible.
We will require the use of a vehicle to traverse the area in search of data/material; needs to be suited to hilly and rough terrain.
We will also need a portable generating set for use in the interior areas (where the National Power grid is non-existent) for seminars, workshops, interviews, etc.
I have yet to receive any material or financial assistance. However, the International Centre for Writing and Translation (ICWT), University of California, has promised a grant of $2,500 (two thousand five hundred dollars) towards the next stage.
If you can help with funding, or give
a donation, or can assist with any of the
above, please contact me.
