Can you sum up the reason for your trip to Cornwall?
This is difficult to sum up. I came to the Cool Earth’s UK office to get a better understanding of how things work here. I usually have my head in admin and management tasks so fundraising work is not something I see very often. I am starting to understand what the fundraising team needs from Peru in order raise money or explain to donors what is really happening in the partnerships.
Also, it makes a huge difference being able to participate and collaborate with important things such as Cool Earth’s Toolbox and the “exit” plan. Going through the accounts, codes and declarations of the Peru project are much easier to talk about in person.
What has been the highlight of your visit to Cornwall?
Discussing Cool Earth’s Toolbox
What key information will you be taking back to Peru?
Cool Earth’s plans and vision.
