Areas that were not fulfilled and the reasons &Problems That Committee Members Faced

We could not gather a large amount of money for unemployed women.

We could not inform everyone about our project.

We could not get the support of the government and private institutions.

In New Orleans we were faced with the problem of communication between our school and Common Ground.

Some companies didn’t have any interest in our project.
