New Delhi, October 29, 2021: The Change the Game Academy, a global initiative which has been co-created by Smile Foundation, is working towards training grass root organizations in India towards self-sustenance through local fund-raising and creating awareness on the ground.
As part of this initiative, a series of workshops have been organised for grassroots organisations by Change the Game India. The latest training was dedicated to Local Fund Raising and was organised in collaboration with Light for the World for organisations in the North East of India. It focussed on disseminating good practices and skills required to attract local funds to the participants for their respective initiatives.
The CtGA under the aegis of Smile Foundation in India imparts the training through an innovative blended learning programme that helps social change makers learn about ways to make people aware of their programmes as well as raising funds locally.
To achieve this, a series of unique training programmes have been curated. Through these customized courses, Smile Foundation is building capacities and empowering social entrepreneurs to diversify sources of funding to help deepen organizational capacities.
Smile Foundation is committed to bring ‘Civic Driven Change’ and to inculcate good practices that empower people.
