Mentors for animal welfare organizations in Africa

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: ANIMAL-KIND INTERNATIONAL

Image_202205130757

Animal-Kind International is looking for mentors to provide administrative and technical support to animal welfare/rescues in Africa. If you are skilled in website design, social media, fundraising, grant writing, accounting, publishing software, and love animals, we can match you with an animal welfare organization (AWO) that needs your help! As part of our "Friendly Audit" program, target AWOs complete a questionnaire about their status and needs; we connect them with a mentor; we have an introductory Zoom or WhatsApp meeting; and the mentor provides support at their own speed, in their areas of specialty as agreed with the AWO. Previous mentors have created websites; helped write proposals for grants; written animal sheltering guidelines, animal care brochures, foster home guidance; strengthened social media presence; and two mentors have even visited the organizations--thousands of miles away-that they mentored after developing great online relationships.

Mission Statement

Since 2007, Animal-Kind International has been raising money for and visibility of animal welfare organizations in resource-poor countries with a focus on those in Africa and a secondary focus on Latin America and the Caribbean region.

Description

We support 10 animal welfare Partner Organizations in Uganda (2 partners), Tanzania, Ghana, Liberia, South Sudan, Namibia, Honduras, Jamaica, and Armenia. Our Partner Organizations receive ongoing funding as long as they comply with our requirements for transparency and accountability. Our Partners can use AKI funds for their priority needs-we don't dictate how they use our funds as long as they are for animal welfare purposes. In 2018, we expanded our reach by starting the Africa-Based Animal Welfare Organization Grant Program. In both 2018 and 2019 we supported 8 grant recipients. Our 3rd annual grant program (2020) supports 9 animal welfare organizations in Egypt, Kenya, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo (2 grantees), Zimbabwe, Zambia, Nigeria, and South Africa. Grantees receive funding for specific projects. We help strengthen animal welfare organizations in Africa by providing technical, administrative, and fundraising support.
