    The course was helpful and informative. However, I had some challenges with completing Module 4 as the instructions in my view wasn't clear , and deadline was missed before I was able to complete the course.

    Gave me the confidence to do fundraising through grant and or crowed funding campaign. The course is very useful especially for organisations that have just been set up and their staff is relatively new in the business of fund raising.
