OSMOS has launched empowerNGO.com, a services wing aimed at equipping mid to small level NGOs with capabilities to present, communicate and reach out to audiences.
Over the years, we have observed that larger NGOs get away with larger slices of the “donations” pie, for the simple reason that they are more visible, can communicate better, and can present themselves in a more appealing manner designed to connect. The larger NGOs also have access to a larger skill set of professionals on various fronts, thereby allowing them to steal a march over the lesser, not so equipped and grass root NGOs.
empowerNGO.com wishes to level the playing ground by taking to NGOs a range of services at extremely affordable prices.
Some of the services that empowerNGO.com wishes to take to NGOs include:
- Enabling NGOs with Websites, domain names, shopping cart, etc at Rs. 2500 per annum
- Enabling NGOs with a range of visibility and reach services including Newsletters and Brochures, Photo and Video services, Professionally designed Project Reports and so on
- Other than this, empowerNGO.com will also provide a range of process oriented services, including documentation, due diligence, conformance and other related services to make every NGO professionally sharper and more credible.
empowerNGO.com is also gearing up in the short run, to publish an eNewsletter that will hit CSR depts. of various companies, and high resource bodies like the Rotary, Lions, etc. The aim of this eNewsletter would be to present to all these bodies, works that the NGO is doing, along with contact details to do joint projects, matching grants and so on.
empowerNGO.com also provides a range of online networking facilities to its audiences, in the form of blogs, photogalleries, forums and so on. Matter from here will be used hugely to project these NGOs to various audiences.
Within this year, empowerNGO.com will surely reach out to at least 5000 NGOs, SHGs, and other bodies with various products and services that will help them get access to larger resources, reach out to wider audiences, and thereby help service audiences better.
