Background and objectives
The volunteer will design a campaign to raise funds online for the organization. The volunteer's task would be to research research crowdfunding platforms and advise the organisation on which ones to use, create content and prepare/upload images to illustrate the organization’s fundraising appeals. The volunteer will be in contact with the organization through Email, WhatsApp. The volunteer will work closely with the resource mobilization officer who will support with all the necessary information. Online volunteers will not submit any funding requests on behalf of the organization.
Project development and management
Resource mobilization, partnership and donor coordination
Since its inception, CAEPA has made great gains in significantly improving the food security and livelihoods of women and girls in Rural North-West and South-West Cameroon. For example Women-oriented farming groups received improved farming equipment, which resulted in the increased production of maize from a previous 1.5 to 2.5 tonnes per hectare. CAEPA also engaged up to 1044 women and 650 girls in agro-forestry learning and practice, as well as engaging 80 women in training on using improved clay stoves and micro-credit schemes to support their small businesses. Much of this work resulted in greater livelihood security and market diversification. Working with pastoralist communities in Balikumbat, CAEPA mapped out transhumance routes and zones and carried out restitution with communities, resulting in a reduction of farmer-grazer conflict. There is significant opportunity for an organization like CAEPA that has supported women’s greater engagement in creating sustainable communities, to take their work a step further to actively seek to change the position of women in the process and this cannot be possible without online volunteers like you.
