In response partly to an earlier message from Dan Bassill regarding raising support on behalf of grassroots organisations in the developing world.
I am co-founder of a small trust operating in Zimbabwe. We provide drama and arts based activities with young people living on the street.
Would anybody like to consider volunteering in this country in the not too distant future?
I am currently engaged in remote fundraising support by way of project bids though in the current financial credit crunch, existing donors are becoming less. This must pave the way for changing strategies in line with the times.
Zimbabwe has for long been the subject of widespread media reporting in terms of governance and politics though if one would simply like to visit a project there, it has been a safe place to visit for me some nine times.
I would like to extend invitations for short stories around 300 words either factual or examples of creative writing by young people for the next issue of The Street Home newsletter.
The launch edition may be downloaded here as a PDF document: Under publications heading, by clicking on the last item;
"The MUSTLE Trust newsletter No 1.
Does anybody out there have any experience of volunteering by way of working remotely, perhaps like editing a newsletter, drafting proposals etc etc?
Has it been mutually beneficial?
Have a great day!
Liverpool, United Kingdom.
