So finishing up my time in Cambodia… I wanted to share the news about the 2 great workshops Alexis (GG staff) and I hosted!
The first was in Phnom Penh and we had 40 attendees with 59 registered! Together with our partner organization, Chab Dai, we spent a half day sharing tips, tricks, and how-tos of online fundraising. Tania from Chab Dai even shared her experience with developing networks, social media, and joining GlobalGiving. Afterwards, Alexis and I hosted “office hours” in local coffee shops to allow 1-on-1 time to help with more detailed questions about fundraising and GlobalGiving… 1 group showed up with a detailed plan for their new online communications strategy!
The second workshop was in Siem Reap with almost 30 participants – we even had some monks attend! There were great local snacks like sticky rice wrapped in leaves. The group split into 5 small groups to do the activities leading up to the final step – creating an online fundraising strategy! The groups generated great ideas, conversation, and input to the activities and group discussions like utilizing social media to nurture and tap into networks.
With my time in Cambodia winding down, I am looking forward to sharing GlobalGiving expertise and tools in Vietnam, Lao, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Philippines!
Stay tuned to hear about the workshops in Ho Chi Minh City (April 4) and Hanoi (April 12)! CLICK HERE to register.
