Photo for Fundraising and Resource Mobilisation.

The foundation of my Fundraising and Resource Mobilisation services is rooted in my journey of over two decades in the field. By leveraging my insights, expertise, and strategic acumen, I am committed to equipping non-profit organisations in the development sector with the means to secure resources that translate into tangible, positive change within their communities. As a seasoned professional in this field, I specialise in aiding non-profit organisations to secure the necessary resources to drive their impactful missions forward.

My offerings encompass a comprehensive array of services tailored to the unique needs of the development sector. At the core of my approach lies the formulation and implementation of effective fundraising and resource mobilisation strategies. Drawing from my rich experiences, I collaborate closely with my clients to create bespoke strategies that align with their goals and amplify their outreach.

One of my key contributions involves imparting invaluable training and mentorship to partners, empowering them with the knowledge and skills needed to craft and execute successful fundraising and resource mobilisation strategies. Through hands-on guidance, I facilitate the development of competencies that resonate with the ever-evolving landscape of resource acquisition in the non-profit arena.

I take pride in my role as a vigilant overseer, monitoring and evaluating the execution of resource mobilisation endeavours. This ensures that the strategies devised are yielding the desired outcomes and providing a positive trajectory for my clients’ initiatives.

My track record showcases a multitude of remarkable accomplishments, of which I’d like to highlight a few illustrative examples:

  1. For an impressive span of nearly eight years commencing in 2013, I played a pivotal role in mobilising resources through grant proposals to NORAD. These collaborative efforts with the Norwegian Federation of Organisations of Disabled People (FFO) paved the way for the Southern Africa Federation of the Disabled (SAFOD) to execute transformative projects. Notably, these projects encompassed capacity-building training workshops for national Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) in Southern Africa, focusing on the Monitoring and Reporting of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) as just one example of several NORAD-funded projects I implemented with my team.

  2. From 2017 to 2022, I was instrumental in mobilising resources in partnership with Loughborough University for the Arts & Crafts Project. This innovative initiative aimed to empower artists and craftspeople with disabilities, fostering community engagement through the creation of art and craft artefacts. The project effectively bridged connections between inclusive crafts development stakeholders in Southern Africa and their counterparts in the UK, fostering the exchange of best practices.

  3. A notable achievement was my leadership in securing funding from the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) for the implementation of the Inclusive Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) Project. Launched in 2016, this project was dedicated to strengthening the capacity of OPDs to enhance access to quality ECDE services for children with disabilities. A crowning achievement was the development of a draft regional (SADC) Inclusive ECDE strategy, which stands as a testament to my fundraising prowess.

Online Crowd-Funding

In addition to my extensive experience in traditional fundraising and resource mobilisation strategies, I am also well-versed in harnessing the power of modern technology and online platforms to manage effective crowd-funding campaigns for my clients. In today’s interconnected world, online crowd-funding has emerged as a dynamic avenue for engaging a wide audience and rallying support around a cause. Drawing from my deep understanding of the digital landscape, I collaborate closely with my clients to develop and execute tailored online crowd-funding campaigns that resonate with their mission and values.

My approach to online crowd-funding begins with a thorough assessment of the project’s objectives and target audience. By leveraging my insights, I craft compelling narratives and visual content that effectively communicate the essence of the cause, capturing the attention and empathy of potential donors. Utilising a combination of strategic messaging, engaging visuals, and effective calls-to-action, I craft campaigns that encourage participation and foster a sense of shared ownership among supporters.

As part of my comprehensive crowd-funding management services, I navigate the complexities of various online platforms, selecting the most suitable channels that align with the campaign’s goals. Whether it’s utilising dedicated crowd-funding websites, leveraging social media platforms, or integrating donation mechanisms on the client’s website, I ensure a seamless and user-friendly experience for donors.
