    Weekly Welcome 7-AUG-2018 for Fundraising and Resource Mobilization

    Hello! We are trying something new to welcome everyone to the Fundraising and Resource Mobilization community of practice!

    We are welcoming those who are new to this discussion space in the last week. The idea is to welcome new members each week and connect with each other so we have our own network for learning and improving the civil society work we do.

    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?

    have learned recently?

    Hi my name is Sandria Watkis-Madden. I am a cofounder of Nissi Youth Empowerment Center. The main focus of our programme is to provide a safe space where at-risk youth, more specifically high school drop outs, will be able to express themselves through art and creative writing while learning effective conflict and anger management skills, developing self awareness skills and improving their numeracy and literacy skills.

    Youths who are not gainfully engaged or who lack proper social skills have a greater chance of finding themselves on the wrong side of the law and so the programme is to help rehabilitate as well as empower these youths with the skills needed to thrive in an ever changing world
