Social Impact Project for Fundraising Experteer to Support Medical Nonprofit
How This Works
In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.
Project Description and Impact
According to the Kenya Hospice and Palliative Care Association (KEHPCA) in Kenya, 1.5 million pain sufferers are in need of relief through hospice or palliative care services, but only 10 percent ever receive some care. This means 1.35 million Kenyans, predominantly the poor and those living in rural areas, suffer pain and debilitation with no relief at all.
We are a US-based nonprofit that supports a newly created Hospice and Palliative Care medical organization, Rehema Open Door, in rural western Kenya near the town of Ringa in Homa Bay County. We are in the process of building an hospice facility that has the first building in its medical complex roughly constructed and will start finishing the building's interior soon. This medical facility has the potential to meet the medical care needs of over 5 million people in rural Kenya.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
How to develop funding processes for a rural clinic in Africa and what the needs are in such an environment.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
