Bridging the Gaps
Bridging the Gaps online course on advocacy and fundraising
Want to learn more about support and resource mobilisation? The Bridging the Gaps Alliance has released an online course on the subjects in English, Bahasa Indonesia, Russian, Portuguese and Vietnamese. The curriculum is based on the needs that have been identified by the Bridging the Gaps partners to sustain their work after 2020. The online training was made available in 2020 for Bridging the Gaps partners; it is now open for all organisations and people working for the health and rights of key populations and people living with HIV in the HIV response.
Bridging the Gaps, an alliance of 9 international organisations and networks, collaborated with over 80 partner organisations led by and working for sex workers, people who use drugs and LGBT people to strengthen civil society, advocate for their human rights and improve the provision of HIV services.

How to gain more support and commitment
The ten-module course focuses on knowledge and skills development on support mobilisation (advocacy) and resource mobilisation (fundraising). You will learn how to gain more support and commitment from donors, decision-makers, and other stakeholders. This will help you influence policy-makers and regulators, as well as secure financial resources for your organisation – ultimately benefitting the communities you serve!
Topics include proposal writing, creating a sustainable funding mix, framing convincing messages, and knowing your change story. Upon completion of all ten modules, you will receive a certificate recognising your participation in the training.
The content of the Bridging the Gaps online learning tool has been developed by MDF Training & Consultancy© in collaboration with the Bridging the Gaps alliance. All didactic methods are a product of MDF Training & Consultancy©.
