GRAPEVINE COMMUNITY SCHOOL: THE ON LINE FUND RAISING OUTCOME

Despite all the odds, we managed to raise some funds.
However little it is, it is going to help our poor children to realize their dreams in life.

First I wish to thank all those who in one way all the other support our initiative. We managed to raise US$850( RECEIVED Amount= US$731=Kshs.56400/=).
Off line we raised Kshs.25600. This amount was not forwarded due to the unstable Kenyan shilling. At the time we raised this amount the shilling was gaining strength against the dollar and that meant as the board members we were to incur loses at the end.
Several factors contributed to us NOT attaining the target.
Some of them are here outline:
(a).Limited access to the Internet;due to low network, power failure and jams at our local cyber cafes.
(b).Many on line fund raisings at the time: most of our friends informed us that they were already involved in other similar activities hence they could not commit all their time to our event.
(c)Most of our local friends do not have credit cards.
(d) We were also very new to it that most of the things we were not able to accomplish.
(e) We do NOT have a facilitator who could help out on many important issues.
I have tried my level best and I will still keep on to facilitate it.
However anyboard out there who may be willing to work with us is Highly welcome.
(f) Most facilitators for other project were also very busy to get their friends support the project that they are facilitating.
These are some of the reasons that made it hard for us to attain the target. We are however planning to follow the advice given to us and make use of it in our next on line fund raising.
I also wish to invite you to participate in the planning so that we can meet the target.
The board decided that we use the money raised to support partially for the whole of this year the best girl and boy from preunit to class4.
Part of the money raised locally was used to put up the new faces of the school posted early.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Sorry it has taken me a long time to get back onto Nabuur. I gave some of the funds for your fundraising, so I'm glad it is going to such a good use. Education is like gold- dust.

My thoughts are:
The Global Giving site had hundreds of projects on, so your project was "lost" in the mass, and very hard to find. I don't know how you can overcome this in the future.

Secondly, in the UK there are many IT and computer degree courses who are desperate for projects to carry out. I'm sure you could get a student project to design a website and make direct online donations a possibility. I will make enquiries here.

All the best
Garry

It is just so heart warming to help raise some funds and help children to build their dreams through helping them to go to school to have a better future.

You are welcome to support these children in whatever way you find appropriate.
They need clothes, food, education and good Shelter.
You can also mobilize friends in your net work to participate in our next online fund raising.
Thank you for you concern. Now you need to act.
Be blessed.
