    2004 project?

    Rajesh Shah of Blue Planet Network

    Is this the project funded by BPR in 2004 and needed a small amount to complete? If so, this should be in the 2004 funding cycle (need to create that) and have the total reflect the amounts funded in 2004 and 2005.

      no, it was a 2005 project... maybe I made a mistake entering it as seperate project... phase 1 was the tank at the faith in christ school, phase 2 was this tank. The funds for this tank were requested and received in 2005 Tobias

        You are right that the funds were received in 2005. However, for the foundation paperwork we had budgeted phase2 in 2004. Since Safer Future was a new and unknown organization to us, we felt it too risky to fund the entire project. Also, i believe even phase I went overbudget and we helped out to complete it.
