After a successful fundrasing ' The Inaugral fete and Open day' that I coordinated last year in July, they approached me to coordinate a bigger one this year and the target is 100 grand! I have agreed to do it with certain set of rules laid down for all of us, had the first meeting with school last week. FVTTCPD now have another senior JICA volunteer, Hiroyuki Saito and one junior volunteer, they have come in place of Kinji, Miho and Saya. Saito's working style is quite similar to mine and so I think I will work well with him too. The basis of the fundraising is 'financial sustainability' of the centre. Keeping this in mind, we have identified 5 income generating projects in different sections of FVTTCPD, thus these 5 projects have become our reason to fundraise this year. We have an accountant who will ensure the tiny detail is taken care of and report will be audited. We have so far planned out three import dates:
27th June: Launch/ Opening of the Nationwide Fundraising Drive (NFD)
25th July: Corporate dinner (targeting major sponsors/ donors)
7th August: Closing of the NFD during the Fete & Open Day
It is going to be very demanding but its all for a very good cause and I am now all focussed towards it, all my free time is dedicated towards this project!
