GAD Coordinator Comments: This sounds like a great initiative, but I have some concerns. First, the budget that was submitted for the project is for 345,350 CFA. 200,000 CFA of the project is budgeted to pay the people involved. This is way too much, especially since everyone involved in the project is already paid by the Beninese government. Second, it does not say in the budget who is financing the rest of the costs in the project. Also, a lot of the write up is in French. This needs to be translated into English. I recommend asking Ryan to address these concerns and translate the whole project into English and when this is done, resubmit.
