Mankind has achieved great feats. We have reached the moon and explored the deepest ocean. In this race of chasing achievements, we have unfortunately overlooked the difficulties of people struggling to gain and protect their basic rights of food, shelter, education and a decent life.
Women have been a victim of neglect by the society. In most of the African and Asian countries, they have been constantly denied education and a respectable status in the society. There are few support organizations that work relentlessly to make a fairer world by seeking justice for women and fighting for their right of education. As a fundraiser, you create awareness about the cause and help in organizing campaigns to empower women.
Poverty is not a natural phenomenon. The poor have been exploited for long and shorn of human rights and a democratic voice in decisions that shape their life. Poverty-relief organizations fight for the rights of the destitute by holding mass demonstrations, lobbying bureaucrats and organizing campaigns for rights awareness. These organizations not only channelize the funds raised but also make sure that growth is delivered. People working in fundraising jobs for such non-profit institutions are like a team of elves that bring simile to the poverty victims all round the year.
Certain non-profit organizations work to provide refuge to the homeless and empower them with vocational training courses. They provide homeless and out-of-work people with a roof over their heads. For this they need to make certain investments. Those working in the fundraising jobs collect investments for this noble cause and facilitate the volunteers to make for housing facilities, personal rehabilitations and life-skill support. As a fundraising volunteer, you are a Samaritan who turns things around for those who have lost their shelter.
Millions across the world are physically challenged and suffer from learning disabilities. They are forced to live with their disabilities either due to lack of the needed facilities or money. For such people, social institutions provide facilities like wheel chair, personal trainer, guide dog, cane stick and others. As a fundraising volunteer you would be required to promote the cause of the charity and gather funds which will help these specially-able people to rise once again in their life.
You can be a hero in someone’s life who has given up on any hope for good. You can be instrumental in creating a world where every individual will be able to claim their rights and live a life they deserve.Tags: fundraising volunteer, mass demonstrations, natural phenomenon, poverty relief, vocational training courses
