Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

We are in need of a skilled expert with skills in online fundraising and networking. This project can be done from your home country as well as from Cameroon.

We struggle every year before the school year begins to collect enough donations for all the orphans to be able to start a new chapter in their education. We want to change our approach for donations for the orphan project in two aspects.

First, we want to start collecting donations for the orphans before Christmas. As you know, the holidays are a good time to initiate big fundraisers.

Second, we want to become a permanent member of GlobalGiving. In order to become a member, the non-profit needs to do a challenge first: raising 5000 dollars from 40 unique donors in one month. It requires a full-time professional working on it and as the fundraising lasts one month, we think the duration of the stay of this volunteer should be between 6 and 8 weeks (and of course – go home for Christmas knowing you have made a change...or at least tried :))

The tasks for the volunteer:

·         registering with GlobalGiving 

·         create the project on the website – and make it sound pretty, add photos, share details about our work etc needed to demonstrate how the donations will be used to make a difference;

·         networking within own networks to find donors as well as sending countless e-mails to big donors across the world;

·         preparing videos, pictures etc during the month to encourage donations.

If the project is successful, we will be a permanent member of GlobalGiving, thus accessing a network of giant corporations alongside our usual donors, which will benefit the orphan project greatly.
