Since 2013, the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) has been organising an Annual Resource Mobilisation Strategy Development Boot camp. During the boot camp, AWDF’s grantees are supported onsite to develop their Resource Mobilisation Strategies. The event which is now one of AWDF’s flagship capacity building activities has become popular with fundraisers within AWDF’s grantees as a critical step in developing their organisational financial sustainability. In September 2015, 15 fundraisers from 15 organisations from South Africa, Botswana, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana and Uganda participated in this year’s 4-day boot camp in Johannesburg, South Africa. This brings the total number of AWDF grantees who have participated in the annual boot camp to 56. All the 56 organisations now have Resource Mobilisation Strategies which they developed during the respective annual bootcamps.
