Edit and Write Content for the Website

Status: Finished
Step:

Over the last several months, Tejanath has been working with a website developer based in Kathmandu to establish a website featuring information about the Sankhuwasabha district of Nepal. The website is located here:

www.sankhuwasabha.com

For this task, we are looking for volunteers to provide editing support, and also volunteers to help Tejanath write content for the website. What type of information would be useful in terms of making the website a successful marketing tool?

Define the tourism project

Status: Finished
Step:

Arun Valley Concern Center would like to support tourism efforts throughout the Sankhuwashbha district of Nepal and draw more tourists into the region. In order to help us establish a clear direction forward, we need a good project definition.

What do we want to offer in terms of support to existing tourism agencies?

What support can we offer to the local community to allow them to benefit from the tourists that come through the area?

Hi Barry-

Thanks so much for your post. I do agree with you about the SWOT analysis. I feel that is a missing link as well.

In terms of comparison with the competition, I'm not sure that we are necessarily after developing a product like a "tourism company", but rather drawing tourists to the region...at least I think. I will have to defer to Tejanath on that, but that is my understanding so far. I think it is a point that we definitely need to clarify. I suppose though even at that we would still need to define what it is that the district has to offer that other areas do not.

Dear Catherine,
First of all, let me welcome you warmly as a new neighbour! It sounds like you really can contribute a lot to getting closer to our marketing goals!

I confirm what you said, that we want to do both: have a dedicated website and sell via ebay/etsy. And I also confirm that the marketing of their products, basically setting up a professional business out of the initiative is a priority for the women.

Fundraising Presentation for the School

Status: Finished
Step:

Min has a 30 minute film on DVD that he would like to begin showing in different communities to help better explain the needs of the children in Gamauli and show the importance of obtaining a good education. If he is able to raise enough funds, funding could also be used for sending the teachers to Kathmandu for 10-days of refresher training.

For this task, we are looking for a volunteer who can work with Min to develop a powerpoint presentation that can be used in conjunction with the film as Min talks with the audience. Min can provide additional information to help with this task.

Edit and format website content

Status: Finished

Soon there will be a new website for Arrow-Web Hospital. The new website address will be www.arrowwebhospital.org. The new website is not yet posted because Steve, the designer wants to review each page with Bramuel before publishing it. I hope to also have a look before the site goes up as I've not yet seen it.

Marketing the Internet Cafe/ Business Centre

Step:

The purpose of the project is to make YOFOSO's youth programmes sustainable. The ultimate goal is that the profit that is generated by the cafe can be used to support the youth programmes.
Now that the internet cafe is up and running there is a need to continually market it to the locals. How can e communicate this widely? A general poster advertising the Cafe has been developed. What other ideas do you have? Think about services that can be offerred, ideas around specials etc.
