B-10. Recruiting volunteers
The partner organizations start recruiting volunteers after they get the project information. LMTV programs are not done without volunteers. So, recruiting volunteers is vital for our programs. There are many people who would like to participate in LMTV program potentially. How we can advertise LMTV programs is very important to recruit volunteers.
Maybe the advertisements are mainly done as following way now;;
If you make good website, many people come to see it. It is also useful to update new information.
Booklet is also useful since it is easy to bring it with them. They would show it to their friends, families. In case of NICE, they translate all project information into Japanese and make booklet.
* Explanation meetings
Making opportunity to know more about LMTV for people who are interested in is also important. You can tell them about your organization, LMTV and its value with talking and showing pictures etc. This meeting is usually for 2 hours or so.
* News papers or magazines
You can ask News paper and magazines to put your information.
Especially, magazine for International exchange, NGO, NPO, working abroad is very effective!
* Symposium or other events
Sometimes it is also nice to organize/join Symposium or events with other organization. You can catch wider target.
* People to people
If you do qualified work, people introduce your organization and LMTV programs automatically. Good work goes to development in the end!
