Albania Mission Against
Human Trafficking

MARY WARD LORETO is planting hope with a human rights approach to combating modern day slavery. This challenging mission is implemented through works of justice, education, grass roots action and systemic change. The aim is to eradicate poverty, the prime cause for human trafficking.

 

The Arise Foundation and The Mary Ward Loreto Foundation gathered in Tirana, Albania for a two-day training workshop on fundraising for grassroots organizations engaged in anti-slavery work. This workshop covered all aspects of the grant cycle, from researching funders, to proposal writing, to building and maintaining strong relationships with donors.

The 42 participants included RENATE members from Eastern Europe and representatives of many different organizations.

Participants left the workshop with greater confidence in their ability to identify and share their work with potential funders and to write proposals. The participants obtained practice in developing components of good proposals, including log frames and needs statements, received tips and strategies for building funder relationships, and learned key concepts and phrases in anti-slavery funding.

The workshop was led by Forward Motion Strategies’ Managing Director Kate Horner. She has over a decade of experience working with nonprofits on program design, monitoring and evaluation, and grants management.

This workshop gave an excellent opportunity for all organizations to network and share their experiences with fundraising.

We look forward to the collaboration between The Arise Foundation and The Mary Ward Loreto Foundation continuing.
