For those of you currently serving, or who have maintained contacts with the communities you've served:

I've written a guide called "Basic Fund-Raising for Small NGOs serving the developing world," and I'm offering it for free to anyone who asks for it. By small NGOs, I mean organizations that may have only one paid staff member, or are run entirely by volunteers; and may not have official recognition by the government. As you know, these organizations are extremely limited in their resources, and are often in unstable environments and/or serving profoundly poor populations.

Please note that this document is NOT written for nonprofits serving the "developed" world -- I'm not sure nonprofit organizations serving communities in North America, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand or Japan would find much helpful in this document. This is specifically for nonprofits/NGOs serving the developing world.

For more information about the guide and my contact information, please see:

We are three in number forming an NGO called Young Christian Organization ( Y. C. O ) seeking to help the poor people in the community.Most of the youths are becoming unemployed because of no skills acquired,majority becoming pregnant in their teens,thieves etc.
I and my colleaques need assistance to help the youths in the Adendenkpo community, Accra - Ghana. Lives are becoming worse and worse and we could see that if we do not give the people the necessary skills and education, posterity will suffer. The three of us have started in our small ways but how far can we go if we do not have enough funds to help the people.

Lifeline Health and Developing Foundation is a non-government, not-for-profit organization working in the rural area of Bangladesh. We are planning to conduct a training program on basic computer operation for the poor, underpreviledged, less educated (up to class 10) women to make them skilled enough to grab some job like front desk staff. In these way these women will be able to earn some money to contribute her family, especially father-in-law's family. If so, their opinions would be entertained in the family. This training will not be free of cost. Every trainee will pay Tk. 200 (3 US $). Twenty five women would be in a batch and the training course would be of three months (3 days in a week). Total 4 batches can be accomodate for 3 months. Total 300 US$ will be collected and this money would be paid as the trainer's honorarium (100 US$ per month). Rest of the expenditure e.g. house rent, electric bill, training material would be paid by the organization. Now we need 25 computers. If we get 25 computers as donation, we can start this training program. And this training will be continued. Please contact:
