Hello friends and family,
I am so happy to share with you, that I have been selected as a Cuso International volunteer! Welcome to my fundraising page!
In February 2019, I will begin a volunteer assignment in Tanzania, working with the Tanzania Local Enterprise Development (T-LED) project in Iringa.
The T-LED project supports local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in overcoming existing barriers to grow their businesses, while paying particular attention to the challenges faced by women-led SMEs. The project also equips SMEs with financial resources and mentorship to support expansion.
Why it is important to me
The chance to contribute and make a difference in the lives and communities of people striving against challenging circumstances, resonates with me deeply.
It is important to me to offer mentorship and support to women who are working toward improving their lives. Mentors have had an important role throughout my life; believing in me and offering guidance and teachings when I needed it most. I want to share the skills I’ve developed, with women who want someone to listen and offer relevant coaching.
I believe that initiatives can become achievements when we work together to create, build, promote and foster positive change.
What I will be doing
As Communications and Marketing Advisor, my role will be to work with local entrepreneurs, with the goal of developing promotional content and workshop content in collaboration with project partners, volunteers, and local SMEs.
I will have the opportunity to use my writing, editing and business development skills to help people share their success stories, and to generate new marketing materials and articles.
I will also help develop strategic marketing plans, coordinate and manage existing communication and marketing content for the T-LED project team and seek opportunities to diversify funding sources.
How you can help
Right now, for every $1 you donate the Canadian Government will provide $9. That means a $25 contribution becomes $250 and a $100 gift becomes $1000!
I hope you will consider making a donation today in support of my campaign. Together we can give hope and change lives!
Thank you so much for your support
With love and gratitude,
Since 1961, Cuso International has been working to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of volunteers, partners, and donors. Each year Cuso International mobilizes hundreds of professionals who volunteer side-by-side with local partners to create positive and lasting change.
