You, along with your family and friends, can join hands and provide help by adopting educational programs, tutoring centers, health clinics, drinking water projects, individual families, college scholarships and camp improvement projects. Join the movement by following these simple steps!
1. CHOOSE YOUR PROJECT
Review our "Current Needs" bulletin on the left to find the perfect project that fits your interests, budget and time commitments. Then, choose an attainable fundraising goal which can be raised by contributions from your friends, family, or colleagues. OBATHelpers is there for guidance and support in order for you to have the necessary tools to make your project a reality. Don’t be afraid to be ambitious! With the right motivation, you can even sponsor the whole project!
2. CHOOSE YOUR APPROACH
What fundraising method sounds interesting to you? There are countless approaches you can implement! We encourage you to do something you enjoy to raise the awareness and funds for your project. Let us know how we can help you! Some of our current project donors have held private dinners/social events for adopting a project.
3. ENGAGE YOUR NETWORK
Tell your friends, family, colleagues and neighbors about your project using our social media tools and invite them to your events. Keep them connected to the project by sending progress updates and impact reports.
4. SEE YOUR IMPACT
Once the fundraising and project execution has begun, you will receive reports on the impact you have made on the lives of the Forgotten people. This is a great tool to share with your group for their donations and support.
