    Dear,
    I stumbled across your cutting-edge work in climate change when I was searching online for funding for organizations that support tree planting and conservation programs for vulnerable countries that could work well for their health and wanted to get in touch.

    My name is Issa Conteh, and I started the Save Life Initiative Organization four years ago, with two other members. We started with a tree-planting program on the potential for providing safety for the planet and our well-being with the support from Arbor Day Foundation and partners Fruit and Shade trees planting program, community tree recovery tree planting program, and fruit tree planting in hospital in Makeni, and Freetown here in Sierra Leone which has both been hugely successful. We are now looking to expand our work into regions to do more tree planting programs in the North East of Sierra Leone.

    I was greatly pleased to find out that you are also a strong supporter of tree planting around the world. In fact, I have communicated with one of our partners you are working with. It was amazing to see how well you help many Organizations,Foundations, and Associations around the globe with funding. It would be great if we could do something similar in Sierra Leone, and I wanted to get in touch to explore the potential for working together.

    I also have much proof to share to show the work we have recently done on forestry and tree planting programs by the organization.

    I hope you enjoy reading it.
