When working with NGOs a consultant from outside identifies a lot of areas which can be improved. The first challenge is to find those ones which make a difference now and help to sustain the organization. The second challenge is the implementation. Resources at NGOs are scarce. We now needed to find volunteers who can work for the next months, maybe even years with the NGO. Looks like today we have found a mentor who is running a successful business and who is willing to bring his expertise into the NGO. As network is everything in the NGO work we are also optimistic that further doors can be opened. Doors which even might have people with funding inside.
But we still look for volunteers at Universities, companies, even parents who are willing to work on the areas the SAP team has identified. The range is from Social Media experts, to marketing experts and even financial experts. It’s not about further concepts; it’s about the doing now! Leveraging the positive momentum for SA teenEntrepreneur and other NGOs the SAP team is involved.
Whatever happens the next weeks is paving the road to the future. We will stay engaged!
