Laundry bar soap making as a venture to eradicate poverty

Humans Alike Initiative is currently training 2 groups each comprising of 50 household heads in laundry bar soap making. This venture is to provide women with an alternative source of income apart from subsistence farming.
However we need 2300 USD to purchase the necessary machines and raw materials for them to start production.
This venture will benefit 100 households.

Hi Isabella,

Thanks for sharing your post. You may want to consider having interested parties contact you by private message, however, as WP is a public forum and your personal information can be seen by others outside the forum.

Have you considered doing a FB fundraiser? Good luck with your fundraiser and valuable initiative.

I have not yet. Am not good with online fund raising. That's why am appealing to the forum if their is an expert who can help. Even through twitter will be good. Do you think you can recommend someone?

I see. You'll get there.

I wish I could. I don't know of any fundraising experts, yet. I usually keep my eyes out for fundraising opportunities on the "Resources" page, and on the internet. Have you tried gofundme.org or indiegogo.org? Maybe on your website, if you have one, or on FB? Good luck, dear!

Thanks dear, I think I should look out there especially on those platforms that you have mentioned. Regards.

You're welcome. Yes, it's a good place to start, and keep your eyes peeled for other opps. Did you look at all the ones on the "Resources" page already? There are quite a few for African nations, usually. Good luck!

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests; yes, tell these storiies too... - they will enlighten and inspire your network.
