Arab-German „Jour Fixe“ for Young Academics – Workshop: Building an NGO

“Workshop: Building an NGO” on Monday, June 30th 2014 at 7:30pm, DAFG head office, Friedrichstr. 185 (Kontorhaus, House E, 7th Floor, Berlin) We cordially invite you to participate in the workshop "Building an NGO" at the 2nd meeting of the Arab-German "Jour Fixe" for Young Academics organised by the German-Arab Friendship Association (DAFG). Dr. Anja Gebel and Helena Burgrova of 14km e.V. will share their knowledge about how to build an NGO. Both speakers are committed to the non-profit NGO since its early days, having defined its strategy, built up organisational structures, and promoted the construction of an international network to help realise co-operations and equal partnerships between North Africa/the Middle East and Europe. They have also shaped the development of the NGO's main areas of work, such as the International Volunteer Programme that encourages the exchange between Europe and North Africa/the Middle East, and or the monthly Arab Film and Discussion Series. The workshop will give insights in defining an organisation's purpose and structure, project development and event organisation, volunteer recruitment, and PR work. But most importantly, we want to take time to brainstorm, share experiences, and to work on concrete NGO ideas together with the participants of the Jour Fixe. We would be happy to meet you at the event and have you share your thoughts and ideas with us. 14km's work is mainly based on voluntary work and new faces are always welcome! The Jour Fixe is open for English-speaking students of all disciplines and universities. The event will take place in English. It starts at 19:30 and ends with a joint "Iftar" (Muslim fast-breaking dinner after sunset during Ramadan).
