“The internet could be a very positive step towards organization and participation in a meaningful society.”
The programs for which we are requesting for funding fits in the following issue areas:
To enable individuals to participate in the workforce via access to knowledge, capital and/or jobs.
To apply innovative solutions, this (will) increase capacity, allowing the organization to deliver its courses/products/services more effectively and/or efficiently.
To apply tools which will increase the availability of, or improve access to, products/services necessary for people to enter the workforce and earn a living wage.
To apply tools which will increase the availability of, or improve access to, products/services necessary for people to survive and thrive.
Replicable: Designing of the program allowing for it to be easily and cost-effectively reproduced/duplicated for use in local environments around the globe.
Scalable: Designing the project allowing it to expand to meet the needs of the target population without a nearly equivalent investment of resources for each individual or group.
Sustainability: Long-term plan for the program which will include mechanisms by which it can flourish significantly beyond the resources which will be provided by sponsors. A system of an earned income model, which will be generating revenue equivalent to a significant portion of its operating costs, will apply as well.
How our program for which we are seeking funds use Internet–based solutions/Internet based-communications technology to achieve results to improve the efficiency and to reach our programs services.
USE OF TECHNOLOGY:
We have embraced technology in our organization and equipped ourselves with IT accessories (though currently, we are relying on a cyber but we are organizing for a fully equipped office) that we may deem necessary for our activities where we use them as a medium of communication for our activities and programs.
Every member has an active e-mail account which we emphasize as a medium of communication for our activities.
Beyond that, we also extend to using and conducting specific searches on search engines related to using social media for marketing e.g. Face book, e-mail marketing, etc. that has so far started bearing fruits, as we are receiving inquiries through the internet.
We basically use the internet to acquire a resource of information’s on;
- How we can market ourselves especially through our website.
- How we as a platform can reach out to community members for recruitment and coordination.
- To modify an existing successful non-web solution to be delivered via the internet.
- Build an interactive new technology solution for full Internet delivery.
- How we can reach out to development stakeholders, donors and partners to extend to a successful local/regional solution to international scope in order to increase our impact in the society.
Using internet (Technology); our accounting and documentation in relation to communication is much easier as we have online facility to monitor both injections and also use the internet backup solution to save these information’s.
In effect, our data is safely stored, easily accessible and then communication and transparency are components of our programs implementations.
“Thus, without Internet solutions, then it would not be possible for us to grow our programs and impacts.”
