I'm not sure I agree with John's transcribing comment about "the boring stuff" not being funded. I see 99%+ grant funding going into "the boring stuff" and, yes, it is still underfunded, because it is not really the responsibility of grant funders from overseas to pay for it - it's governmental responsibility and is generally a drop in the ocean of need.

Please keep me in the loop, Christina. The idea that innovative projects which empower indigenous Africans with the skills to take over government responsibilities in a sustainable way are of less priority doesn't seem right to me.
