Social Impact Project for Fundraising Experteer to Support Sustainable Development in Togo
Project Description and Impact
We need to develop a fundraising strategy to finance our organization's strategic plan.
In West-Africa, and particularly in Togo where we are based, we are struggling for a better world for marginalized people. At our organization, we believe that our communities are still in poverty and underdeveloped because they are lacking a solution based on their needs and daily realities that is sustainable. So our organization is working to find out a right solution to support sustainable development here in Togo.
To achieve our purpose, we are implementing a development solution that takes local needs into account. This solution is integrating key elements of our local realities such as religion and traditional environment with entrepreneurial education and life skills training together with the assistance of international volunteers. We want the solution to take in account young people education, local marginalized changemakers as well as capacity building and peace building elements among others.
In August 2019, we have made a significant step ahead by developing our strategy plan and theory of change. We have also made a donors mapping. But we are not enough able to conduct fundraising operations. We're seeking support to help us to understand how fundraising work and fill the gap by writing and submitting proposals.
To effectively engage young people, local marginalized changemakers and social entrepreneurs, international volunteers and local partners into our solution we need to fund it. We would like to work on this with an experteer who has a good experience in financial and fundraising practices.
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:
Opportunity to practice human-centered design in developing a fundraising plan and taking part to non-profit operations that meet our organization's/ the community's needs. Gain hands on experience with a grassroots social enterprise.
The Experteer will be accommodated in a guesthouse with a private bedroom. The room has its own bathroom. We could accommodate either one individual or one couple. The office workplace is also inside the guesthouse which is located in the safe Airport area. Many restaurants, hotels and facilities are around and accessible.
This is a good opportunity for the Experteer to experience Africa. We could guide you to experience Africa and particularly a West-African country called TOGO with its sandy Atlantic coast, its local way of life, local meals, local clothing. Meet local people and live as simple as walk to shop at the community local markets.
Free-time activities could be organized like hiking sports, swimming or museum, zoo, African crafts and folk discovery to put you at the heart of our culture. If you decide to discover the countryside and natural parks and zoo, the villages of the hinterland, we could help you arrange it… surely you will love the rural mountains regions and their landscape and small waterfalls: ready for a trek experience? It is possible too.
Evening relaxation would be a particular moment to let away the stress of the working day and to build friendship, a privileged moment to discuss with others about what matters to you... and if you like it why not a Yoga class for beginners (an exchange or simple introducing to the yoga and practicing some positions for beginners), or would you prefer a local native language study such as Ewe? It is up to you, you are welcome to our country Togo.
