The Batonga Foundation is a jewel of an organization that has yet to tap its potential for helping to educate girls in Africa. I was introduced to Batongal more than a year when a friend invited me to attend a fundraiser for the organization. After hearing the remarks of those in attendance, I was impressed with its mission. A few months later I offered to assist Batonga. The challenges currently facing Batonga is the development of a strategic plan that will address future fundraising strategies that will allow the organization to hire at least some additional staff members; a plan of action for expanding the board; the development of a data base of donors and alumni; and the development of marketing materials that clearly tells the story of the wonderful work that this small organization is doing to change the lives of girls in Africa.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

1. Develop a strategic plan of action for the next ten years. 2. Expand the board beyond the few members currently on the board. 3. Develop a plan of action for raising funds to sustain the organization for at least five years. 4. Develop a plan of action for establishing "partnerships" with other organizations that can help in funding the education of a number of the girls in each country. 5. Developing a plan of action to look at sending some of the graduate on to college or additional training
