GlobalGiving held a workshop in Kampala, Uganda in March, 2011. Over 90 NGOs attended (about 110 people). We talked about how to build an organization’s fundraising strategy from the grassroots illustrated in this animation. I asked each NGO present to map their immediate partners, and then I compiled all of these maps together.
The data was a massive loosely interconnected network. So far, 27 of the about 90 organizations are shown in this map (version 1):
The next version (when I can get electric power back on in my apartment!) will hopefully illuminate how all NGOs interact, fund, and work together in various ways.
If you see yourself on this map, look to see to whom you are connected, and to whom your partners connect. Reach out to nearby organizations that share partners with you.
