About the Speaker:

Rosaline is a serial social entrepreneur who has designed, managed, and started many social impact programs. Her work experience spans from a multi-national £120M climate change program across 4 continents, to a zero-budget grassroot affordable housing project in Canada.

She designed this webinar based on her experience raising funding for her projects, trying to find the methods that yield results with a small or even one-person team. Here's what she has to say about why she was compelled to build this program:

"Funding is the lifeline for any social impact program. But I had no guideline when I needed to figure out fundraising for myself. I spent years of research, took university certification courses, watched thousands of hours of YouTube videos trying to understand how to apply these fundraising practice to my context. I would love to save you all this time, effort, and headache."
