It aims to help you, a manager or a leader in an organisation involved in the struggle for justice, with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to help you to do your work effectively and ethically. Because if you don't do you work effectively and ethically, your struggle will be in vain. FUNDRAISING AND RESOURCE MOBILIZATION Fundraising and resource mobilisation maybe a high priority on your list. But in the kind of context you are operating in, the prospects of raising sufficient funds might not be so good. In order to be effective - in order to bring about equity and justice - you need to be able to effectively fundraise and mobilise your resources, and effect change. And yet many of you are not able to do this. That's what this course is for. The courses involve distance learning from interactive materials on CDROM with support from a course tutor via email. In addition there will be a workshop in the region and assignments and one major project. Each course will comprise three phases: Phase One: You will be supplied with interactive learning materials on CDROM to use at home or at your workplace. You will be supported via email by a course tutor. You will be required to complete a series of assignments over a period of approximately eight weeks. Phase Two: This will involve an intensive workshop in southern Africa lasting for about 5 days depending on the course you are registered for. The workshop is compulsory. Phase Three: This phase will last about eight weeks and will involve you carrying out an assignment within your organisation. You will be supported via email by a course tutor and submit your work for assessment. Those successfully completing this exercise will be awarded with a Certificate of Completion from the University of Oxford. This project is supported by the European Union, the British Department for International Development, and the Canadian International Development Research Centre. Partial funding is available to cover fees, travel and accommodation for up to 15 persons per course from within the SADC region. Successful applicants would be expected to pay a registration fee of USD250. On completion of the course, a voucher of USD100 will be issued to support another member of the organisation to register for a course.
