Trainings which took place after nomination processes helped participants to put skills and knowledge they acquired into practice
“I am a candidate contesting for parliamentary seat - Korogwe Town. The session on fundraising and resource mobilization has been an eye opener and very valuable to me. In my first attempt to run for this post in 2015, I thought fundraising involved only asking for money from big businesses and wealthy people. I did not know how to mobilize resources from my supporters. Today, after the session I started an online fundraising platform using my Facebook and Whatsapp accounts. I asked people to contribute TZS 1000 only. I can proudly say that, within few hours today, I have raised TZS 300,000 for my campaign.
