Updates from Project Tres - Jan. and Feb. 2023
I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to every and each of you who donated to us in the past months.
Besides our monthly supporters, we have ran a crowdfunding campaign from December 2022 to January this year, aiming to secure fully the yearly expenses in terms of social impact we have in both countries.
We got 92 donations during this campaign, and together we managed to raise 8868€ (after fees we received today 7828,24€) out of the 25000€ required to continue our work this year. Even though we didn’t raise all we needed, the funds will be extremely helpful for the continuation of our social programs this year, and without you, that wouldn’t be possible.
I know sometimes it’s hard to stay connected and motivated to help when there are so many different issues going on in the world at the same time. For that reason, it means a lot to us when you decide to take your time and your resources, to believe in the work we do.
What happens next?
The funds will be used to cover our centers rent, continue the mental health program, cover part of the school fees we require for the year 2023, and partially cover the monthly payments of the 10 women already working with us in both countries. As the situation is right now, we won't increase the number of women paid monthly as we planned, will have to reduce the food support only for extreme cases, and will continue to fundraise in order to cover the school fees for all the remaining 16 children in India and 24 in Kenya.
We will need to raise the remaining money throughout the year.
Currently we continuously look for funding opportunities in the government and through foundations, and we are hopeful that will happen this year. On the other hand, we have to keep on trying to secure what is needed through the ways we also already know: people. For that, in the upcoming months, we will be promoting our sponsorship option, where individuals (like you) can donate to us on a monthly basis, choosing the option you prefer to invest in (mental health programs, project development, administrative costs, education, food, and health support).
Thanks for already being the first ones doing this! If you can also spread the word about your sponsorship and invite others to do the same, that will be extremely helful. At the moment we count on around 500€ monthly donations and we are aiming to reach 1000€ in the next 3 months.
We are also looking for companies interested on donating to our organization, so if you are an entrepreneur and would like to know more about the initiatives we are aiming to fund via corporative donations, send me an email via email@example.com and I can give you further information.
Thanks for your contributions, for your hard work as a volunteer, and for your support as a friend spamming your network with our posts and campaigns. I know these are hard times but together, we will navigate through that once again, and I feel very grateful to have had you all this time (or just joining us now) along this journey.
A big hug,
