Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are hoping to obtain enough donations to start fundraising via Google for Nonprofit, google Ads, Twitter, Facebook, Link In etc.
But at moment we need to find someone who really knows their way around social media, so we can keep you updated daily on what is happening with your donations and keeping everything transparent.

We have a volunteer at moment me! But my knowledge of social media is dim and we really need to pay a Social media specialist to teach us how to accomplish all the goals needed to make your giving easy and giving our donors peace of mind as they view what an impact their donations are making on our side of the world.

The Best, second to non, experience wise we are just getting our feat wet, but we are hungry for knowledge and where there is a WILL there is away. Our mindset is we can learn anything if we put our mind to it and we will. Give us a chance so we can show you what we are made of.

This year has been a challenge to raise the necessary support to make a difference in lives of people fighting diabetes; we have educated, fund research programs and provide medical care and distributed truckloads of nutritious produce.
Whats next, saturating all social media with post ,blogs and videos of all our work. In addition to the mentioned above we want to add new programs for example one we have recently started is going out to the most impoverished areas and Giving out Nutritious food Boxes to attract people and children so we can educate them on the hazards of diabetes and on how nutrition and eating healthy is the best way to prevent diabetes and keep diabetes under control. We would also like to buy glucometers and glucosmeter strips and provide them to people who need it most. Make a Youtube channel where we educate the people about diabetes and other degenerative diseases.
