Project Details

What We Need
  • A written summary of the Organization's marketing goals and target audiences
  • A list of key marketing channels that will yield the highest return on investment, with rationale
  • Specific tactics the Organization can use to leverage the identified marketing channels
  • Messaging guidelines for the channels identified, including specific key messages (if needed)
  • A summary of the key metrics for evaluating marketing effectiveness, and guidance on how to track metrics over time
What We Have In Place
  • We have a recently conducted market analysis/evaluation, which should make it easy for you to get started. We have Google analytics set up on our website. Also, we have been in operation since 2011 and the Operations Manager has been involved since the beginning and knows all aspects of the organization. She will be able to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $11,198 , allowing us to pay for school tuition, transport and supplies for all 16 of the girls in our beading program for one year.

The success of our organization depends on successful marketing and sales of the products made by the participants in our programs. With your help, we will be able to sell more products, grow our operations and help more girls in rural Kenya to attend and graduate high-school and more women to become self-sufficient and provide a better life for their families and communities.

It was an immense pleasure to work with Devang! His professionalism and expertise are invaluable! We thought we would be getting a marketing strategy but we got so much more. We now have a clear vision that far exceeds of where we want to be and how we can get there. We appreciate his timeliness and enthusiasm for our cause and it would be our honor to work with him again in the future.
