Project Details

What We Need
  • A compelling narrative, or set of stories
  • Persuasive copy that can be used in appeals to donors, annual reports, grant applications, and media relations
  • Popular examples: Organization's founding story, a program achievement or milestone, a look back at the past few years, organizational backgrounder, etc.
  • Note: This project is not intended to support your general content planning or marketing but there are several projects in our Marketing & Communications category which are a good fit!
Additional Details

I'm looking for support in capturing the stories of our organization and documenting them in written form so that I can better describe our organization, what it does, and the impact it has and will have to supporters and potential supporters. I have a broad array of messages I'd like to convey but need assistance in narrowing those down and creating compelling stories that I can share the same way over and over.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have many written materials about this subject, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have many people for interviews and providing testimonials, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to continue to dedicate the majority of our funding to direct programming for the kids we serve in Tanzania.

Addressed in statement of what we are looking for.

Our Mission

We leverage international travel & volunteering to build capacity for local NGOs in Tanzania who are fighting poverty in their communities.

What We Do

We work hand-in-hand with local NGOs to implement and develop their ideas/projects so that they can achieve their mission of ending poverty in their communities. Currently, our main project is a collaboration with Mother's Mercy Children's Organization in Arusha, Tanzania to provide indigent youth with their basic needs, as well as access to quality education and healthcare services.

Testimonials

Turned drafts around very quickly and we were able to complete the project in just a short-time. Appreciated his responsiveness and the quality of the written materials was great!
