Learnt how? So they will build a website purposely to get people's business ideas or what? Pls do explain. Some of you like to discourage people from exploring opportunities while you had secretly applied.

continue, it is more risk not to take risk. UNECA has not denied the portal if theirs or not. An instagram post quote from a random account is not enough.

It's not a genuine program
Re: B.I.S Grants 2021: United Nations Africa by Mcstanley: 8:23am On Sep 15, 2021
People just want opportunities without caring to know where it is coming from. All those saying not scam not fake continue to apply. This program application is supposed to end on the 24 of this month, but the URL is down. If it is not fake, then why is the URL down before the original closing date? Please let us wise up a bit, this is the 21st century.

To my understand they want to use your document to prepare a fake visa to buy dollars and that is why the police clearance certificate is needed
