Sharing is caring, you may have seen this somewhere…

In today’s article we will approach the foundations of crowdfunding. Why? Because this funding method requires some knowledges to reach the success. Indeed, the base of crowdfunding is set on the crowd. On an internet platform, this crowd is your network.

So, the objective is to manage your network in order to glean some participations. How to do that? Why? Let’s see the answers.

How to manage your community?

Nothing more easy. When we say “manage”, it means “share” and “commit”. Your role as a member of worldcoo, a provider of project, or just a visitor, is to keep tuned your network. A little reflex like a share button clic, a comment, a like, or retweet is a lot more efficient that you can imagine! Truly, the internet communication is viral and extremely powerful. The slightest action gives birth to an incredible result.

Why do I have to engage my community?

Because you are the ambassador of the project. Worldcoo is only a platform who host it, but the communication is made by you. Also simply because it is the strongest way to bring a project to success. For example, if you make a donation and then tell it on your social account, there are many chances that your friends, members of your family, or anybody who can see what you’ve done do the same.

To conclude, if you are a donor, a mentor, or if you just want to support a project without involving money, you strongly should share a maximum the cause(s) you believe in to make them successful.

Got it? If so, lets join Worldcoo on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
And don’t forget to spread a maximum the project(s) you support!

Sharing is caring my friends 😉

Fundació Campaner’s work in Diffa

In 2006 Fundació Campaner built a school in Diffa, to ensure free schooling for the most unprivileged children in the region. Also, they have a local shelter, as well as other projects.

Since 2006, the most unprivileged children in Diffa can go to school thanks to Fundació Campaner NGO. Nowadays this school has 540 children who are in Primary School. Education is free for all of them, and also the scholar material they need is given by the NGO. The school has ten classrooms, latrines and a playground where children can play. It employs ten teachers hired by the Fundació, all native of the area.

Fundació Campaner NGO also has other projects there. In 2004, they restructured a shelter in Diffa which takes in child’s with Noma affection and orphan child’s. Now, about 30 children are live in the shelter, amount that has been changing over the years.

The house has two main rooms for children, bathrooms, living room, kitchen and a garden. Eleven people are now working there, all native of the area. They are responsible for maintaining both: the home, and children’s welfare and education. Every people who work for the Fundació Campaner NGO has about 15 indirect people who live from their salary.

Sergi Figueres: "Our challenge is to bring our know how in the field of crowdfunding to put our bit to help develop cooperation projects"

Worldcoo’s CEO, Sergi Figueres, signed this morning an agreement of collaboration with Carles Llorens, director of the Catalan Agency for Development Cooperation (ACCD). The aim of this agreement is to promote cooperation crowdfunding as a new way of financing cooperation projects, in front of the current decline of funding by the government. “What is needed is to push the business world to cooperation”, said Llorens.

This new partnership will mean for Worldcoo access to technical validated cooperation projects validated by the Agency and its advisers, and for the ACCD will be a new way to seek funding for projects that now they can not stand, joining to other already initiated ways of funding, as the sponsorship agreements.

Sergi Figueres has emphasised that “our challenge is to bring our know how in the field of crowdfunding and to get involved people and businesses through our website www.worldcoo.com. In this way, we put our bit to try to get where government does not reach”. Precisely one of the characteristics of Worldcoo is any cost for NGOs, while ensuring the full contribution of crowdfunding to projects, because their profit is in the management plans of the companies’ Corporate Social Responsibility. Therefore, it represents a paradigm shift on how far the world has worked in cooperation. Sergi Figueres, Aureli Bou i Bernat Mir launched this company one month ago, and they already work with projects from Intermón-Oxfam, Fundació Campaner and Desos NGO.

Carles Llorens says that “we have large difficulties to maintain public investments in cooperation for more than a year and a half, so we have put in place mechanisms to solve it”. The willingness of the Government is to find new ways of financing and innovative instruments adapted to the Catalan cooperation reality. Also meets the guidelines of the Master Plan for Development Cooperation 2011-2014, which establishes the need to promote innovation in policy instruments for development cooperation of the Government, as the tools to implement the strategies of cooperation have evolve according to the changes in international contexts.

Both Worldcoo as the Agency have shown hopefully in this agreement and wish a long and prosperous partnership.
