Yesterday, two representatives from Career Disha Nepal (Hari Krishna Dahal and Suresh Kasula) and one representative from VHS Bhaktapur (Bijaya Gosain) attended two workshops on social enterprise and crowd funding organized by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Development of King’s College in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The workshop was about fundraising for NGOs, INGOs, and Social Enterprises. We learned that crowd funding is not about collecting from the public, but it is about approaching your friends, peers, and collecting money from them. Through this workshop, Career Disha Nepal learned a bit more about the process of crowd funding and about the time limitations involved. It was a good workshop and we are more confident that this knowledge will help us with our future operations.
