International Workshop on Resource Mobilisation Asia | bursaries available

The International Workshop on Resource Mobilisation (IWRM) Asia aiming to build the fundraising capacity of non-profit organisations takes place in Bangkok, Thailand from 25-28 October 2011. Bursaries are available for 10 selected NGO representatives from Asia. Apply now! The Resource Alliance has a 10 year history of organising the IWRM. It is widely recognised as the leading training for building the fundraising capacity of non-profit organisations in the emerging economics.  Host countries have included India, Malaysia, South Africa and Kenya.
