Posts about Fundraising
It seems that all villages have projects and some require funding to help start with the plan. I am posting some fundraising site provided by our online volunteer Sushmita. I think these sites would be very helpful to any villages who are in need of funding.
This proposal is as a result of the almost finished Conservation Plan by Dave and Barry
I wish if neighbors can help to edit this proposal before we present it to Kenya wildlife service
Sajos Academy Kiserian would like to purchase a plot of land on which they can build their own school. The school is paying a monthly rental fee for use of their existing building. The cost of rent at this time is 20,000 KES/month ($246.61 USD/158.79 GBP). "Yes We Can Self-Help Group" usually raises these funds monthly by members contributing 100 KES each. Sometimes they find it harder to raise the funds for rent due to other monthly expenses associated with running the school.
ONE NET PER CHILD
EFORDE have already given fruit and other tree seeds to several people in Nabitende and would like to provide more. To do this, they need to get access to free or reduced-cost seeds or obtain funding to buy these locally.
For this task we would like to hear from people who can suggest where EFORDE can obtain free seeds in Uganda or internationally, and ideas on organisations who can be approached for funding.
Mosquito nets for Nabitende: share your experience of net distribution in Uganda, or help us raise money
Malaria is a problem in Nabitende so EFORDE wishes to provide mosquito nets to community members.
They would like to start by obtaining 100 nets to be distributed to children, mothers and the elderly.
Many organisations provide free or reduced-cost nets in Uganda but, because of the high level of need across the country and lack of information on application procedures, it is not easy for a community to be selected to receive these nets.
My name is Norasco from Tanzania. I am the Executive Director of the VH-LAHA organization and I wish you all a warm welcome to the Kehama Village!

We hope that you will take the time to introduce yourself and tell us a little more about your experience so that we know how we can best utilize your skills and expertise. We look forward to getting to know you and are certain that together we will accomplish great things for the good of the people of Tanzania.
We need you to help us brainstorm creative fundraising ideas!
Have you been involved with creative fundraising efforts at a local school or community organization? We are looking for creative ideas for fundraisers. Research can be done on the Internet for this task, or you can simply share from experience.
We would like to create a "bank" of ideas, so that Keframa College can learn from the experience of others and try utilizing some of these different strategies to help fund their development work in Uganda.
The school board and management of Keframa Colllege intend to continue working in partnership with the Lango Youth Action for Development organization. The goal of this partnership will be to focus on development issues at a grassroots level one of which is promotion of income-generation activities to support the school.
