Help

Hi friends. Its been a while since I connected with you. I have been inundated with work, planning a Women's Seminar etc. I opened a teaching Ministry in 2011 and it is growing steadily. I am in the proces of introducing a short psychosocial course. This course will basically benefit the communities at large, including pastors, congregatons, etc. It is aimed at the less fortunate. As mentioned earlier, this is a psychosocial initiative. It is a counselling short course to give people the enablement to deal with spiritual as well as understand in a basic way, the psychology of a person. This will greatly help those who have suffered all kinds of atrocities be able to deal with situations, be able to counsell a family member in times of loss of a loved one, it will help pastors know how to offer help to their members who have been bruised mentally. The communities which i work in are basically poor dwellings who are never able to afford counselling and psychiatrists/psychologists fees. I have noticed how wounded these communities are, can you then imagine the children they raise? The reason why i am writting this is to seek asistance of anyone who might know where I can appeal for grants or assistance funding to start this beneficial project.
Thank you

Great project

First, let me applaud you on this wonderful project. Your efforts are needed all over the world...thank you for staring in your corner! I look forward to reading about your successes, and I wonder if you might be able to share any of the teaching materials that you would use?

Second, I encourage you to post your "Need" for funds in our Resource Exchange. You can do this here: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange/submit

Be sure to give as much background information about the project, yourself, what the money would be used for, etc...as possible so that people feel compelled to connect with you and share their funds or ideas.

Third, I hope you'll take a look at the World Pulse Fundraising Toolkit! It's full of information and advice. Please let me know if you do end up using that... we like to know if it's helpful or could be improved.

Thanks again, and good luck!

Great info

Thank you for your response and thank you also for finding my proposal worth looking at. The info you directed me to will surely be of great assistance to me. I just now have to sit down and plan my proposal carefully since that has always been a challenge to me. When i have structured my proposal correctly, i will surely send you a copy so that you can have an idea.
