This year we are taking part in a major, national celebrity-backed fundraising campaign in support of our work. The campaign is an innovative challenge event designed to raise awareness of extreme poverty and to inspire people to action against it, whilst raising money to support RESULTS’ work.
As such, we’re looking for four passionate, self-motivated and confident interns to help us engage as many people as possible with this fundraiser and the work of RESULTS. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience working on a major national fundraising campaign and working with volunteers, development professionals and the media.
My name is Margaret Ya’u, a Commonwealth Professional Fellow currently in the UK on a placement with Results UK for three months. In Nigeria I work with Civil Society Action Coalition on Education For All (CSACEFA) as the programme manager.

It also works to strengthen the capacity of CSOs/NGOs in effective engagement with the government and the general public in education service delivery.

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you personally were responsible for ending poverty, you need to see this new video from our friends at the Global Poverty Project:

Take a second to share this video far and wide!

On our March Focus call last Tuesday, we talked about RESULTS’ upcoming May fundraising event, which will be a sponsored half marathon or 10km walk in the Hertfordshire countryside. On the call, Louise and Aaron talked us through how to prepare for the run, how to recruit participants, and how to go about achieving excellent levels of sponsorship.
Some brilliant ideas were generated, including setting up a ‘buddy system’ for those who are not able to participate in the run to ensure that everyone can get involved in fundraising. We will be sending out more information soon.

Focus Calls are held on the third Tuesday of each month and provide RESULTS activists with an opportunity to share and learn key advocacy skills and to get up to speed on a range of international development issues.
