    There were over 300 people who joined last week from the Measurement and Evaluation course! Wow! I can’t list them all or it might break the system. I randomly chose 50 people, but please join in and introduce yourself.

    Let’s meet some of the people doing good work around the world!

    Reply and tell us:
    1. What project are you trying to raise funds or organize for?

    2. Why are you working on that project?

    3. What is one lesson you have learned recently?


    We are so happy to have you here! You can come here when you need support in with Fundraising and Resource Mobilization and we encourage you to come back and help others with their challenges when you can.

    For everyone else, be sure to reply to people who are new and introducing themselves. Commenting in a new space can feel a little intimidating so let's give them a reply so they know we are in this together.
