Hearts of Gold CAP Achievements

By Maria Jose Orellana | Executive Director

During this three month period, we have seen a lot of progress in the Community Assistance Program (CAP). We are the only organization in the country that provides education for the leaders of nonprofit organizations. The results we have achieved through training and mentoring are evident. Hearts of Gold is part of building a more humane society with more opportunities for our children, teenagers and families to have a better future.


Currently, our partners in CAP have learned many lessons which have benefited in their day to day operations. In this period, Nova, El Arenal, Kallpa Warmi, Osso, Cetap Lucy, Mírame and Soup Kitchen have achieved a good score in the six areas of their CAP evaluations (Programs, Marketing and Communication, Volunteer Management, Fundraising, Donor Management, Transparency).


With NOVA, we have completed mentoring hours to help them create a fundraising campaign and apply what they learned in previous workshops. The campaign is ready and will be launched in the next few days. Please stay tuned.


With the Soup Kitchen project, we have helped them restructure their program so they are able to offer nutritious meals and reduce costs. This means that they will have be able to offer their services for a longer period of time.


Cetap Lucy has been able to start with a new sexual abuse prevention project. They have also been more active in event fundraising and creating alliances.


El Arenal Foundation is still working on funding their nutritional program for the year. They have been able to build a better staff environment and are working on improving their volunteer management.


The Kallpa Warmi collective received mentoring hours to help them manage new resources and new donors. They also have a new board of directors, which it allows them to organize themselves in a better way.


Finally, we have made an improvement in our Community Assistance Program evaluation system. The new template consists of quantitative and qualitative measurements for each learning achievement. Scores will be uploaded to our website with graphic representations, so our partners can see which level they are on. We hope that this will motivate organizations to put more effort into learning and achieving the best score. At the end of the training year, an award will be given to the organization with the highest score.


Thanks to each of you for building a better world for everybody. Thank you for having a heart of gold! Together, we are the change!
