Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Our organization is looking for a fundraising expert/pundit to help in setting up crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for our two urgent projects to be implemented at Chemka Village located in Kilimanjaro region in Tanzania. The first project is to raise USD 5,500 for connecting safe drinking water at Chemka Primary School. Due to lack of safe water pupils and teachers frequently suffer from diseases such as typhoid, Urinary Track Infections (UTIs) and schistosomiasis. These conditions are not only costly, but also perpetuate poverty among the children and their households. This project will help to improve school attendance, health and dignity of more than 250 pupils especially girl pupils.

Lack of healthcare service adversely affects health and dignity of more than 2,000 villagers especially the lives of more than 1,000 women and children. Due to lack of healthcare service within the village, children have lost lives, women have given birth on the road or at home under unsanitary condition and have suffered from pregnancy and birth-related complications. Moreover, the already poor families spend a lot of money in search for healthcare located far away outside their village. In Tanzania, almost 23 women die every day from birth-related complications or nearly one woman in every hour. This project will help to ensure sustainable access to healthcare facility for mothers, children and an entire village. 

We have some raw videos for the projects and so the Experteer is expected to finalize the micro-documentaries, write projects compelling stories for using in crowdfunding campaign. This work requires good computer skills ability, basic video editing, strong social media and story writing skills. One should expect to spend time both in the office and in the field.

DELIVERABLES

The Experteer will be expected to raise USD 7,500 for connecting safe drinking water to Chemka Primary School. Also, the Experteer will be expected to raise funds to help in completing the construction of a dispensary facility at Chemka Village. We will know that the Experteer project is complete once we have the required funds for the dispensary at the village.
