Molly's Network is Tanzania's first and only Accreditation scheme for local non-profits, with a complementary capacity building model
Molly's Network believes that local organisations have the best understanding of the needs in their communities, and are often best placed to identify how to meet these needs. They are passionate about development, innovative in their approaches, and committed to the long-term. However, they are also often poorly resourced, disconnected from funding opportunities, and lack some of the skills and knowledge needed to operate in a wider context.
Molly’s Network seeks to support these people and their organisations through 'Molly's Accreditation' and our complementary capacity building model.
Molly’s Network’s Vision: There is a recognized sector of local effective and efficient civil society organisations that is contributing to local and national development goals.
Our Mission: Is to support non-profit organisations in Tanzania in realising their ambitions, through our independent assessment process and complementary organisational strengthening model.
1. Assist local organisations in attracting recognition, partnership opportunities and funding from local, national, and international stakeholders.
2. Support 'High Potential' organisations to refine the skills, knowledge and the systems needed in order to implement projects that effectively address local need.
3. Building up an active network of local organisations which benefit from sharing information about initiatives and practices.
We have a unique selling point as we are the only Accreditation scheme for local non-profits in Tanzania, however, we are a small NGO with currently only one person responsible for fundraising. We need support in understanding what opportunities there are, how to harness them, which donors are contributing significantly in Tanzania and whether there are opportunities to raise funds in the UK.
We would also like to design a campaign called 'Are you a Friend of Molly's Network?' This is both to raise our visibility in Tanzania and the UK and to raise funds for our core programmatic work. We need support in designing the campaign and getting it off the ground!
