What did Somo need?

Sarah helped Somo

Why is this project important?

A new pitch deck will allow us to better communicate what we do, our impact and ways to get involved to potential partners and donors. This is extremely important in communicating our mission.

This project will save us $4,212, allowing us to invest in 4 new impact start-ups from informal settlements in Nairobi.

What did Sarah have to offer?

Hello!

My name is Sarah Duchano and I would be thrilled and honored to offer my skills to such meaningful, wholesome organizations. I graduated from Ithaca College in 2015 with a B.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications. I'm currently living in Rochester, NY but am planning to make the move to LA this fall.

Hello!

My name is Sarah Duchano and I would be thrilled and honored to offer my skills to such meaningful, wholesome organizations. I graduated from Ithaca College in 2015 with a B.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications. I'm currently living in Rochester, NY but am planning to make the move to LA this fall. While still living at home, this is an unbelievable opportunity for me to easily use my talent to create purpose-driven work. From a professional perspective, I'm very interested in brand design, writing, idea curation, advertising/marketing, graphic design and layout. My greatest passion, however, is holistic and functional nutrition.

Upon graduating college, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis as well as a benign brain tumor, which put a temporary halt on pursuing a career in advertising. I had the tumor successfully removed a few months later in February 2016, and am now finally moving in the right direction towards chasing the dreams I had two years ago.

What did they have to say?

Sarah was amazing to work with! The deck she created for Somo is ridiculously beautiful and she was super fast to complete any edits. Would recommend her to anyone trying to create a deck or any other visual branding material for their organization!

It was an honor to work with Amelia, one of the co-founders of The Somo Project. She provided more than enough information, resources and materials for me to successfully complete a 22-page pitch deck for the organization. She was so thoughtful and clear on any changes that needed to be made throughout the project. I couldn't be happier with my experience and I can only hope my work makes a difference for such a big-hearted and inspiring non-profit.

About Somo

SOMO is the root of a Swahili word meaning "lesson". We are called SOMO because we all have lessons to learn from each other. Visionary entrepreneurs exist in informal settlements around the world.

SOMO identifies, trains, funds, and mentors entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities. We invest in social entrepreneurs and provide the training and tools to help them build enterprises that change their communities from within. By investing in the right people, we help break the cycle of poverty and help bring long-term stability to urban slum areas.
