There are a growing number of Overseas Aid agencies operating in Ireland.
With the ever increasing need to provide support, shelter, protection, education and training to the people of the developing world, charities need to be ever-more strategic in their approach to securing funding for theese programmes.
For many years the Irish Government, through Irish Aid, have provided substantial support to numerous Irish based NGO's, however there is a constant need to match this support with donations from private sources and this approach requires a clear fundraising plan. OKC works with clients to develop strong fundraising programmes to ensure the long-term sustainability of their overseas projects.
Clients have included:
» Burma Action Ireland
» Connect World
» F.W. de Klerk's Global Leadership Foundation
» International Services Ireland
» Irish Missionary Resource Services
» Islamic Relief
» World Vision Ireland
