Salaam -

I recently stumbled across a Karachi-based organization whose projects might be of interest to ADP. I have not personally met any of the Directors or persons involved with the org - which is why I've not submitted an official "project proposal" - and thought this might be the best place to post the info below to generate any ideas/further thoughts. As the initial feasibility has already been done by the organization, it seems it would just be a matter of directly asking the organization for the info without doing too much ground work.

The organization's mission is provided, followed by specific projects that they need funds for. A point to note is that I was unable to find when the website has been most recently updated, but it seems the org continuously has projects in the pipeline.

This looks like a very compelling organization. This is as good a lead as any other we have. I suggest someone from ADP make contact through their website (http://www.indusearth.org/contact.htm), introduce ADP and direct them to our project proposal form online.

If they submit a proposal, we can reach out to our contacts to see if anyone can provide a reference.

Does anybody have a connection to them? If not, I can get in touch. Sarah, did you want to contact them on behalf of ADP? Let me know...

Justin -

After receiving your email, I briefly spoke with Andrew Patrick, Administrator for Indus Earth, and he was very interested in ADP. What I gathered from my brief convo, they are currently working on two projects in coastal areas as funded by CEDA and Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund, and have some projects in the pipeline that they may definitely want funding for, including one that focuses on dams in Balochistan. Either way, I've directed him to ADP's website to fill a project proposal out - which he will discuss with his CEO, Mr. Shahid Khan prior to filling it out.

If ADP likes the proposal - or would like further information if/when it is submitted - getting a reference/more information for them will not be a problem.

That's great, Sarah. Thanks. I look forward to getting something from them... By description, the org seems like a perfect fit for ADP - sharing a broad approach to development...
