SFF Partner: Learning Visit
One of the capacity-building opportunities that Segal Family Foundation offers to its partners is a small grant to support “Learning Visits” to see other SFF partners in action. It’s a low-cost way to share ideas, gain inspiration, and make our community of creative collaborators even stronger. Here is the story of one such visit…in a guest post by Wendo Dorcas, chief executive officer of Dandelion Africa.
When your organization is ready to expand and grow, what do you do? The NGO I founded, Dandelion Africa, serves the people of three rural Kenyan counties and was in need of renewed energy and ideas to move us forward. Thanks to the suggestion of our partner Segal Family Foundation, we decided to visit another one of their grantees in an effort to learn from them.
We returned feeling motivated, renewed, and excited. We started to dream about how the Dandelion Resource Centre will look like in five or ten years, and how much more we can do. A huge, heartfelt thank you to Rafiki Wa Mandeleo and Segal Family Foundation for giving us the opportunity to learn!
