My experience convincing people to donate funds for Edhi & Akhuwat Foundation

I recently had the experience of convincing people to donate funds for a Edhi and Akhuwat Foundation with that approached people individually and in groups, both online and in person.

Individual vs. group engagement

Engaging people individually was more challenging, but it also allowed me to have more personal conversations and build relationships. I was able to learn more about their interests and motivations, and tailor my pitch accordingly.

Engaging people in groups was more efficient, but it was also more impersonal. I had to be careful to keep my pitch brief and to the point. I also had to be prepared to answer questions from a variety of people.


One of the biggest challenges I faced was convincing people that their donation would make a difference. Many people are hesitant to donate because they don’t know where their money is going or how it will be used. I had to be able to clearly explain the foundation’s mission and how donations are used to support its programs.

Another challenge was overcoming people’s negative perceptions of charity.

Overcoming challenges

I overcame these challenges by being prepared and by being persistent. I also made sure to be respectful of people’s time and to be grateful for any donations I received.


This experience has helped me to develop resilience. I learned that it’s okay to be rejected, and that it’s important to keep going even when it’s tough. I also learned that even small donations can make a big difference.



Convince people to donate funds for any foundation can be challenging, but it is also rewarding. It’s an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of others. If you’re thinking about getting involved in fundraising, I encourage you to go for it!
