Bring relief quickly and efficiently around the world.
CRI needs to expanding our training program to train an additional 10,000 volunteers in addition to the 10,000 we already have. CRI does not mobilize untrained volunteers to disaster. Expanding our marketing to target the right people at the right time will help more people to engage, give and volunteer with Crisis Response International. Most of our volunteers often become donors as well. So expanding training programs also expand our donor base. This is a win-win and in the end, those affected by crisis and disaster will have their needs met more effectively and sooner. Again, marketing is key to this.
We have a solid foundation of principles and practice that just need to be scaled. We have a world class team, just not enough of them. Key designated funding will allow us to meet our goals and expand our reach. In the end, it is about helping more people.
We will know that we are being effective by how many people we are serving and how long we are able to serve them post-disaster.
We recently launched an online training program that takes stress off of our training staff and puts training opportunities in front of many more people around the world. Simply put, more volunteers; more impact!
