How NGOs Can Use Bulk SMS to Organize Training Seminars and Workshops

  13 October 2015

Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are establishment that offers selfless services as a humanitarian gesture. Once your NGO has been set up, the next thing is how to get the news of its inception into the ears of everyone who needs to know. We’ve already seen how this can be done, and the role bulk SMS can play in this regard. Just in case you missed that, see it here.

 

Once an NGO has become solidly established, one of the inevitable consistent components of the organization are training seminars and workshops, and rightly so. These seminars and workshops are organized according to needs within the area of specialization of the NGO.

 

 

To begin with, a seminar must be held at the inception of the organization. The aim of this is to introduce the public to the NGO, let them know the major role of the organization, its goals and objectives, and what is expected of the masses to be a beneficiaries.

 

During your awareness, you must have gotten some phone numbers. So the next thing is to get a notification of the workshop across to everyone from your bulk SMS account. Include in the message the name of the NGO (which could serve as sender ID), the venue of the meeting, the date, the time and title of the workshop. To make things interesting, you can even request that each person come with one or two more persons while attending. This is how you start getting your NGO founded.

 

As a standard, many NGOs holds seminars at specified time period in a year. It might be once, twice, thrice or more. Bulk SMS can equally be used to inform people about this seminars. The process of getting a phone number database is easy.

 

At this seminars, people will be there that are really directly affected by what the organization stands for. These are opportunities to get active beneficiaries to do more target seminars for in the future. From these, can even come more who can benefit.

 

Even at times that are not scheduled for regular seminars, there might be a pressing need in the community that borders on what your agency does. Seminars can be held at times like this and what better means to announce an emergency meeting if not by SMS? Use bulk SMS to get everyone down there.

 

Also, if you have a website, which it is highly recommended you do, people should be directed to it in your SMS and during the seminars. This also increase traffic for your site and optimize it in search engine.
