Fundraising and Resource Mobilization Training TRAINING from Amref Health Africa

Internship Programme

Resource Mobilization and fundraising


Mobilization of resources is recognized as the foundation for self-sustaining development. Mobilizing resources are important in financing investment and social programmes, which are essential for economic growth and for eradicating poverty. Financing for economic growth and poverty reduction is one of the challenges facing projects and programmes, however, resource mobilization can be managed more innovatively for greater effectiveness. In this context, a sound fiscal policy, responsible social spending and a well-functioning and competitive financial system are the crucial elements mobilizing resources.

Resource mobilization includes all the actions taken by an organization to ensure that it has the resources it needs to properly implement its strategy. The term “resource” covers not only financial resources, but also the human resources and goods and services made available to the organization. A resource-mobilization strategy requires broad outreach to potential donors and partners in order to diversify the sources of support and financing.
