International Workshop on Resource Mobilization Asia 2013

An International Workshop on Resource Mobilization for NGO’s is being held from August 20th,2013 at Jaipur. The event is being organised by the Resource Alliance.

NGO’s in India

India is blessed with a  large population of 400 million who constitute the middle class but a mere 5 % of these are contributing to NGOs and charitable organizations. Equally there are a large number of High Net worth Individuals who do not contribute any donations to NGO’s. There is a dearth of skilled Fundraisers with NGOs who can access the above in a professional manner to optimize on their efforts.

Without skills NGOs find it difficult to strategies, plan, communicate and raise resources they require. It is only with skills that NGOs will be able to involve people with their causes and work and move towards sustainability, this is where the pivotal role played by the widely recognized International Workshop on Resource Mobilization Asia 2013 (IWRM) comes in.
