News from the trustees
A learning event of outstanding significance for the Board members of BASED UK was undoubtedly its Zoom meeting with two members of the Board of the Bahá’í International Development Organisation based in Haifa, Israel (see photo below). Ms Lori Noguchi and Mr Sina Rahmanian consulted with our Board members for an hour and a half on 25th February 2021 with a view to ‘learn more about the approaches that BASED UK has been taking for each of the organisations it is supporting, and what it is learning in this regard‘. They shared some of their fundraising insights gained from years of experience in the development field in Africa and Asia, and heard about consultations with Baha’i professionals and the current funding landscape in the U.K. Our Board is convening an imminent meeting in order to apply the valuable insights to the relationships with our 3 partner programmes.
