The International Workshop on Resource Mobilization (IWRM) Africa is Africa’s leading symposium on fundraising. Now in its third year, the IWRM Africa on average annually attracts more than 200 participants from over 25 countries across Africa and beyond. Many international and local NGOs on the continent now include the IWRM Africa on as an integral part of the annual training programme for their staff, leaders and board members.
The IWRM 2012 delegates were treated to the best Gala Night ever on 29th November 2012 at Speke Resort Munyonyo. In honour of the African woman, the Gala night theme was Celebrating the African Woman. Ten African women who have inspired fundraising in Africa were recognized during the event, giving them a platform for the celebration of their achievements. The dress code, the decoration, the food and the entertainment were all designed and aligned to celebrate the African woman.
