A common affliction-the dearth of funds

In this challenging economic times, our organization, as with many NGO’s, is not spared from a common affliction- the shortage of funds. Since Reach’s formation, we have been relatively spared by monetary woes but not this year. Pledged funds which would have tide us over unscathed, have not materialized. As a result we are “downsizing”.  Our administrative work will be done by volunteers till such time when our funds permit us to hire an office staff. We regret to inform that activities which are costly to carry out will not be fully sponsored. This include reforestation activities. (Only 4 wheel drive vehicles are able to navigate through the rough roads and their transportation cost is high.)

Activities such as CSI and EEP will continue as their cost is relatively low. We apologise for having to disappoint schools who have written to us recently, as Septembers and Octobers are the golden post exam months when the students are free to join in our activities. In order to continue our environmental work, we seek funds and support from the public. Our donations are tax exempted.  The public can also support us by buying our merchandise especially our book on Montane Birds of Cameron Highlands. We can be contacted at reach.president@gmail.com or reach.corybas@gmail.com. Other email addresses will no longer be in use.
