According to their motto - “Love, truth, and service to community” - Xingyang Volunteer Federation works to enhance people’s sense of social responsibility through providing them various volunteer opportunities. The office is in Xingyang, Henan province.
Since our partnership with TFISH in 2012, transparency has become a core value of Xingyang Volunteer Federation. In 3 years of cooperation, we learned about what it takes to operate a small organization and attract more funding. TFISH's capacity building program for grass root organizations has helped us achieve a new level of professionalism.
I still remember writing my first program evaluation report. TFISH staff Wang Jun provided us with a guide on how to write a clear and standard tracking report with photos and activities. With the support from TFISH, we printed 2 sessions of newsletters. We gained a lot of visibility and it became easier for us to gain credibility from the public.
This year, TFISH launched Project Figure Board to create accurate presentations, which has been a challenge for us volunteers. Xiao An is actively working with TFISH's financial software. Producing income statements, expenditure statements, and information records has been a challenge, but will eventually work in our favor.
