We're working on a final grant report that will highlight accomplishments, challenges, and next steps. We have an outline and a strong starting point with some drafted documents. We seek help weaving a compelling narrative for our funder and potentially using it in other capacities. We'd love to pull a draft report together by the end of this month.
This project will position Ubuntu to advance its mission. The intent is to share our impact, attract additional financial investments and human resources to undergird the efforts of taking on the challenge of building individual and collective capacity of residents and key stakeholders. And as a result, create a thriving, livable, and equitable community for all segments of its population.
UCC's mission is to co-create a sustainable community impact platform for all community stakeholders, by building collective agency and social capital to ensure a healthy, thriving, and vibrant community for all.
UCC seeks to introduce a people-centered community economic development initiative that provides community-based intervention strategies at the saturation point. We believe that through collective action, we can increase and more efficiently deliver services and resources. Thus, reducing the effects of poverty that has exacerbated existing stressors (such as housing and job losses, behavioral/mental health, and environmental issues) on families, individuals, and communities. We provide technical assistance, training, and capacity building for individuals, families, and key stakeholders. Additionally, promote advantages of innovative learning opportunities that create entrepreneurship options for youth and adults while greatly benefiting under-served communities in need.
It was a privilege to work with Noah. He brought his incredible talent, skills, insight, and perspective to the storytelling project. He inspired me to think outside the box in telling Ubuntu’s story. I submitted the report last week to the funder, and the reviewer had only two minor revisions. The recommended changes were pertinent to the outcomes of the project.
The Ubuntu team was very kind and professional. We got on great and I would work with them again.
