Always looking for new ways to use our business skills and create sustainable success for customers, Cleo Bowen, Bid Director is currently volunteering for an NGO in Swaziland. Taking time out from UK and international bidding, Cleo is helping All Out Africa, an ambitious and flourishing development organisation not far from the capitol, Mbabane. She has already successfully tested this volunteering business model in Ghana last year.
With over 70% of the population living below the poverty line and 1 in 3 adults infected with HIV, Swaziland needs serious help. In the 4 weeks in country, plenty can be achieved to give All Out Africa staff new skills in bidding for funding, improving their business process and building a high performing team. Beyond the NGO, support can be given to a broad range of SME, both individuals and collectives in the Swazi communities, helping them to understand their markets and customers better and grow their business to improved levels of sustainable turnover and profit.
