So this week we had a class taught by students! It was very well prepared and we enjoyed the change. We have looked at spider-grams, which helped us gain a clearer view of what we as a team find important, for example we value teamwork, access to expertise and client information. This was an interesting lesson as we learnt from each team member that they thought.
Moreover, today we had a discussion with Satish and discussed our progress so far. We haven’t been able to Skype our NGO as frequently as we would’ve like however we try to make the best out of the situation and be creative! We thought of points that the NGO may be interested in adapting or improving on. To catch their interest we need to come up with a few ideas but work them out and have details and examples. So to sell these ideas we are going to definitely work on how we could find solutions to their problems in for example their promotion/advertising or funding. Not only can we solve problems, we could possibly improve, develop and upgrade their already existing ideas! We were thinking of a newsletter that gets sent out to the volunteers, addressed to their name so it will feel more personalized. We could also think about the layout and what would be more appealing and draw attention. Or for example learn from WWF how they obtain funds and let that inspire us to create a program that Constru Casa may want to apply to their promotion techniques. So we will do our research and come up with awesome ideas!
