Dear Marilyn Gardner,

My name is Miss Toyin Obayemi, a social worker in a nongovernmental organization (children@stake). In my search for more materials and lectures for the children in my local area, I stumbled [upon the] ACEI [home] page, where I saw some articles [that] focus on infants and toddlers. It is of great interest to me if I can be incorporated into your mission and extend this to children here in Lagos, Nigeria.

Thanks,

Toyin Obayemi, children@stake
