Communication Plan and Fundraising: Ashley Wilson
Foi et Joie is a non-profit that manages the complete management process for 17 schools across Haiti. Together with volunteers from América Solidaria, Ashley worked on a communication plan for the organization – determining audiences, products and languages of each – for the upcoming year. Ashley also wrote about the Deep Dive sharing her impressions before, during and after.
She also helped produce a fundraising brochure for a school in Karis that can be used as a model for other school-specific projects. Since Haiti she has talked about the trip with friends and used social media to promote Foi et Joie’s work, apart from staying in touch with her newfound Haitian friends on Skype and email.
Ashley Wilson has a degree in public relations and much experience in the fields of communications and education, as a teacher in public schools, at Capitol Hill and at the Global Campaign for Education USA.
