Utilizing the Power of Storytelling in Fundraising

From February 12th to February 15th, 2023, I had the opportunity to participate in a grant fundraising training organized by 350 Africa. The training was designed to equip us with the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully raise funds for our organizations and campaigns. One of the most important takeaways from the training was the emphasis on the importance of storytelling, digital campaigns, and fundraising tactics.

Climate activists seek Pope’s support in calls to halt oil and gas exploration in DRC

Pope Francis visited DRC from 31 Jan to 3 Feb and his visit meant a lot to the people of DRC who have been claiming for peace, stability  and climate justice. Laudato Si Mouvement in collaboration with 350 Africa conducted a series of actions in Kinshasa and a twitterstorm in order to call the attention of Pope Francis on the project of auctioning 27 oil blocs and 3 gas blocs by the DRC government.

CSO’s and youth call for Climate justice in Nigeria, in light of recent floods.

As a precursor to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP27, Global Initiative for Food Security and Ecosystem Preservation (GIFSEP)  in partnership with other Civil Society Organisations convened the Arts for Climate. The Art for Climate was part of activities for the African Climate Caravan taking place in 28 African countries.

GIFSEP launches #Vote4Climate campaign to spur action ahead of forthcoming elections.

Climate change has had a substantial effect on Nigeria over the past few decades. An increase in temperatures, droughts, a reduction in biodiversity, unpredictable rainfall, etc. are examples of present problems. The floods that wreaked havoc on portions of Nigeria this year are the worst in a decade; more than one million people were left homeless, and 600 people died. In addition to other states, the floods in Bayelsa, Rivers, Delta, Edo, Lagos, Kano, Adamawa, Jigawa, Benue, and Borno submerged homes, important roadways, and farms.
