Inlexca provides flexible programs that would allow prospective volunteers to choose how long they wanted to volunteer for and in what area they wanted to focus on. This flexibility allows our participants the option to commit for as long as they want, unlike other programs that required one or two year commitments. We do this because we believe in the principle that every volunteer can make a difference, no matter how long they volunteer for, together, we can help communities grow and become stronger.
INLEXCA´s mission is to strengthen human resources in Central America through volunteer programs, educational tours and internships. In addition to this, INLEXCA provides opportunities to students, professionals, and interested persons from countries outside the Central American region, to better understand the reality and challenges faced by the countries in the region. We work towards : -Sustainability in the projects and communities that we work in. -Programs that promote cultural exchange. -Safe and affordable programs. -Strengthening and empowering communities. -Authentic experiences for our volunteers. -Facilitating education.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Inlexca has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.
With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success. You can check out a few tips below before clicking the button above, to get started!
Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.
Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!
Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
