Code 043 is a Dutch non-profit organization based in Maastricht, which is focused on helping and supporting young people with the execution of new plans or ideas that can benefit other citizens who are living in Maastricht in the near future. Smile to the Future is collaborating with them since 2013 in order to get more internal and external support from them that will allow our international foundation to achieve our goals. Moreover, Code 043 can also help us to finance our first “Mind your Business” and its main owners are interested in the idea of providing the right tools to other individuals who deserve a better future and want to make their dreams come true.
A representative from Code 043 came to our office in Maastricht and offered us some free workshops about crowdfunding after the celebration of some important General Meetings with other staff members who are collaborating with us at our main headquarters in Maastricht. Crowdfunding is a new initiative that is very popular in a lot of countries around the world and this idea is also suitable for charities that are looking for new ways of funding different Fundraising campaigns in developing countries according to Code 043. After the presentations, Smile to the Future has just started with the implementation of its first crowdfunding platforms about new humanitarian projects in Kenya and our fundraisers are receiving some proper training after listening to Code 043´s tips some days ago in order to help them to succeed with their new tasks as fundraisers.
