On Thursday the participants of the fundraising session in Warsaw learn how to prepare a logic model of the project description containing context, inputs, activities, outputs, and both short and long-term impact of the project on the society. Tomorrow they will listen to invited guests, who will share their experience in raising funds for and involving volunteers into project implementation.
