Financial Sustainability & Grant Funding Workshop
Kathmandu, Jan 2023
On 19-20 January 2023, RICOD’s funding partner Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Nepal hosted a two-day financial sustainability and grant funding workshop. Alongside teams from Shanti Nepal, SAHAS, HRDON, and KOSHISH, RICOD participated actively in learning about various funding strategies and approaches, with focus on self-sustaining funding, grants, and effective storytelling.
The RICOD team was comprised of Executive Director Ram Hari Ghimire, Treasurer Rachana Maharjan, Board Member Sita Devi Neupane, Project Coordinator Kunjana Pandey, and Researcher Evan Strong. Throughout the interactive sessions, MCC Nepal encouraged the promotion and marketing of organizational work with attention to safeguarding and diverse audiences.
Beyond the training sessions, team members were able to network with other NGOs and discuss funding strategies, leading to fruitful interactions and inter-organizational camaraderie. RICOD graciously thanks MCC Nepal for this developmental opportunity and plans to use this new momentum to imagine and implement new funding approaches.
