TrustAfrica, a Pan-African grant making foundation with partners and associates across Africa, and working in partnership with the Hewlett Foundation, is inviting applications for letters of interest (LOIs) to design and implement early learning innovation projects from organizations in Kenya, Uganda, Mali and Senegal.
