''Incredible, knowledgeable and impactful. Before the program, we used the general content writing format for our work but as a result of the program, we focus our content writing now on storytelling format which has attracted more donors. Now we get funds from donors through diverse kinds of storytelling platforms''

''Before joining this boot camp, I was at a point where I was almost giving up because things were not going exactly how I envisage they will. I got clarity on how to structure my social enterprise-how to raise and attract funds to run my social enterprise. The thought that went into planning it, the richness of speakers, and commitment to it is really commendable.''

''Clarity, holistic, game-changing.
I had just started my NGO and needed more clarity on how to be a leader in the non-profit space. Since joining this program,  I have established the Didi project which is a comic book used for sickle-cell awareness. I have turned the ideas I simply wrote on paper, into real projects for my NGO. This is a huge milestone for me and I am confident I will always have a non-profit family with Donors of Africa"
