In line with its Private Sector Plan the Country Office is increasing its fundraising efforts from private individuals, with a focus on building long term sustainable income, through monthly (pledge) donations.

  • Plan, coordinate, monitor and implement regular telemarketing and e-mail campaigns.
  • Improve the supporter’s experience online.
