Fundraising in a Pandemic

On the first day of our 10-day Parallel Lives event programme we focus on Fundraising in a Pandemic.

I will be talking with two individuals currently working to raise funds for their respective organisations that operate in low resource settings on two different continents.

Jane talks in the interview about a new campaign launched in January called the New Year, New Shoes Campaign.

Throughout February, Jane is running 5km at 8.00 am every morning to raise awareness of the campaign. After speaking to several funders, who did not see the importance of their school children having shoes, Jane took it upon herself to raise the money.

AGF has sourced a local business who create school shoes made from locally recycled materials approved by the Haitian Govt. Your support to the “Impact Shoe” means you support the immediate needs of our students and support the Haitian economy.
