Foundations receive many grant requests. We do our very best to read all of them and seriously consider the merits of each. Some fit well and others not at all. It was clear from the outset that Madina Village School and Bobby and Francis Mustafa were a very good fit. As founders and main drivers, they are very vested in their work. Francis grew up in the village. Our very first conversation, requested by the FFF, led to the decision to fund Madina Village School. We are proud to invest in their work.
