To make progress on the pressing issues we face today, young leaders, entrepreneurs organizers, and advocates need the skills and training to turn a desire to change the status quo into meaningful and impacted civic action. But finding the time to attend a training in person can often mean time away from other everyday priorities. That’s why ALFI offers an online training & incubation platform named ALFI e-Hub —where you can develop your skills without leaving your home, connect to mentors available for helping, design your projects, and raise funds. And if you miss a live online training, you can always check out the recording and watch it at a time that’s convenient for you. Whether you’re looking for introductory-level skill-building or something more advanced, we have a training series for you. ALFI e-Hub is the first online incubation platform in Senegal. It takes the complexity of building an entrepreneurship program and makes it into a smooth and manageable process all-in-one place.
Turning IDEA into a PROJECT is a five-part series that introduces people to fundamental skills they’ll need to start designing their project for addressing an issue in their community. The series covers personal skills checking—a fundamental mechanism for understanding the principle of know-how and know-how to be; the issue of deep understanding of the key elements in entrepreneurship —how, when, and why to leverage your potential; starting effective conversations—steps to take to get conversations about people issues as tricky as threats to transform it as opportunities; and designing their project using the ALFI e-Hub—leadership & entrepreneurship structures that help individuals remain sustainable, quick, and nimble.
Digital organizing goes hand-in-hand with any fieldwork you do. There are entire communities of people ready to learn about our issues, take action, and recruit their friends to join in—but to get them involved, we have to understand how to use digital platforms effectively. In this three-part series, we review strategies for organizing and mobilizing, dive into the strengths of social media for organizers, and then cover best practices for both photography and crafting posts—so that your efforts make as much impact as possible.
