My organization - "Children and Young People Living for Peace(CYPLP), was found as one of the case study.

This is an amazing account of resilience and diversity of financing in action! We ask questions about this in our annual survey every year, and have been part of various initiatives to help explore alternative models too, like this social enterprise and legal empowerment incubator program. Thanks for sharing!

At some point, it would be great to see some of your insights into starting a crowdfunding revenue stream and ways of making it more consistent.
