Charity Consultancy: Gatan Marayu

Gatan Marayu Foundation

I have been fundraising for Nigerian Charity Gatan Marayu since 2013, it is a charity close to my heart as it is run by 4 amazing women who set it up 10 years ago in 2009 with the aim of empowering widowed women and orphaned children. They work together organising events, raising funds and finding sponsors.

One of the ladies came to me wanting to raise their profile on Social Media. Having someone to teach them and support them on how to use channels like Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram is crucial for the charities awareness and of course I jumped at another chance to give back.

This will be an ongoing project and we intend to cover all channels.

The Instagram session included content inspiration for stories, ideas on strategy for their feed and general advice on settings, features and using #.

If you want to learn more about the work I have done. Please see testimonials from the four ladies who run the charity. If you want to follow them on Instagram, you can see the work they do here.

The whole experience was so so useful. It gave me an incredible insight into the ins and outs of Instagram. Today I learnt so much and also gained the confidence to delve deeper into Instagram.

I definitely recommend Renu’s services to anyone who is struggling to find their way around Instagram and other social media platforms. You will definitely benefit from Renu’s knowledge and expertise. Our session with Renu was extremely valuable.

Our primary aim is to increase our followers and create much more awareness and in turn find more funding for our cause. With Renu’s help I look forward to seeing these numbers increase. I look forward to our next session. God bless my darling. May you continue to keep shining.

I greatly benefitted from the session with Renu as I had only beginners knowledge and no idea about the magnitude of possibilities Instagram offers. I particularly liked how she patiently let us try out on our phones how to apply the lessons she taught – a great way to retain the information! Her enthusiasm about her work is tangible and inspires as she teaches.
