Fragile management affecting the quality of care, education, service and impact.
One of the participating institutions is small and its biggest dream is to acquire its own headquarters to carry out its activities. In addition, this institution had a project that used to manufacturer handicrafts and prepare food to sell, which was closed in 2018 due to lack of resources.
Thanks to mentoring in the areas of Strategic, Financial Planning and Fundraising, the return of this project was prioritized, with a study of costs and feasibility for pricing products and sales channels.
With the development of mentoring, both the organization and the mentors were able to qualify and understand the management processes to restructurer of this project in the institution.
The project was resumed and focused on the specific production of brigadeiros (traditional Brazilian dessert) for commercialization. The students were less idle and contribute to the institution's income generation, in addition to the proceeds from the sale of brigadeiros that are used to buy supplies for the handicraft workshop.
We had a good experience and we will certainly implement some resources that were passed on to us for the next year. We have already started with the elaboration of strategic planning for events here at Conviver, as well as in relation to financial planning, where we were able to absorb as much as possible. We resumed our Arte Com Viver (Art with living) project to prepare sweets for sale, today with a better project design and with adequate financial planning. All learning was shared with the team of professionals, which further strengthens our work. Thank you!Silvana, president of Associação Conviver
