    we appreciate these constructive efforts by USA mission, its too late still its good initaitive to have strong relationship and link between the two. we think USA should faster its activities so that the oppressed people of the region may get their destination soon, there are many araes to be developed to make life sustainbale in GB, specailly the education, economic development which never done before, conservation of forest and protection of wildlife and culture and heritage are the most volnerable areas to be addressed soon. there are many local organizations working but to lack of finacial support they can not work effectively, Hamaliya Green Society is working for last 10 years but could not bring any innovative solution for alternative engery to cutdwon the high rate of greenwood utilization as source of fire wood its just because of lack of funding, otherwise they have excellent planning for this. i would say USA should contact local NGOs rather than National level NGOs who usally consumed more than 60% on expenditures

    This is a very small deed, We expect some thing big such as a University / a big library, a school for poor students with american teachers etc . A book seller can do this for us and it is not a big deal.
