In search of funding for an art for social development project

International volunteer from the United Kingdom making art with children from Farafra Oasis on a previous project

We are currently on the hunt for donors to fund our project! Our budget is quite small, considering the impact, as the project is entirely volunteer run, and we rely on hosting our projects with the most basic expenses.

Our main expenses are:

– Accomodation for 25 volunteers from 10 different countries including Egypt (and five organisers) in Alexandria. We are looking to rent an apartment/house in downtown Alexandria

– Food for the volunteers and staff for 3 weeks (We rely on in-kind donations from sponsors, as well as cash flow to buy the remainder of food)

– Transportation costs, stationary, art supplies and building supplies (Which can also be in-kind)

You can read more about the project, and organisations behind it on the pages of this blog, and keep coming back for more posts and updates.  If you are interested in helping out with donations, or contacts for in-kind donations, please contact us at: alexstaff [at] eg [dot] cisv [dot] org
