Development initiatives often lack support because they fail to make clear what they need, how people can get involved, and what their impact will be.
Clearly communicating how people can contribute to the initiative, and what impact they will have, is key to persuading people to share their time, knowledge, and resources.
Initiatives should set up multiple ways for people to contribute and get involved. This can include such things as:
• online resources.
• informational hotlines.
• concrete donation alternatives such as school materials, equipment.
• child or community sponsorships by individuals, enterprises, or even workers’ organizations.
