Overall objectives: The Fund-Raising Unit seeks to maintain relationships with corporate houses, individuals and schools to strengthen resource mobilisation for Adopt a Mother, Save her Child and Educate a Child sponsorship programmes and other projects.  We track fund flow and allocations relating to sponsorship programmes.

We organise brand building and fund-raising events. We facilitate exposure tours for donors and visitors to CINI field areas and encourage involvement by corporate volunteers with CINI.

Our Unit also handles enquiries and provides information to individuals and organisations interested in supporting CINI work.

We support resource mobilisation efforts by selling CINI-branded gift items, such as coffee mugs, key rings, caps, T-shirts, umbrellas, post cards.
