For the purpose of this assignment, I will name the nonprofit organization Good Hope Centre. Good hope centre is a community based nonprofit educational facility that provides tutoring for underprivileged children from the community that this organization is located and to some extent to children who might be from outside communities, but have been assed and considered vulnerable. The organization majorly admits orphans with high levels of vulnerabilities. The organization is only two years in the community and has done a tremendous job despite the several challenges.
The stakeholders that I would wish to influence to buy-in and commit to this organization are the government and the local community (Skinner 2006). The government is responsible for the provision of quality preliminary education to its entire citizens. Therefore, it is the right of these underprivileged children to access education form the government. Therefore, in the first strategy, the government would be my audience. In this strategy, I would contact the government ministries that are responsible for education and the welfare of these children. I would explain the need for government inclusion and participation to the local authority (Dlamini 2004). I would present to them audited reports of the organization and explain organizational achievements and points of needs. The government is always willing to support ongoing projects as opposed to helping individuals start up new ones.
The second strategy involves influencing community participation. This involves organizing retreats that are aimed at showing the community the advantages they gain from the organization, which includes giving them a report of previous studies of the state of the community before the organization came to their remedy, and the current state of affairs. The community members also have to be informed on their roles in ensuring the success of the organization. The organization recognizes the level of vulnerability of the children and the community, nevertheless, the community is rich in agricultural produce, which are seasonal. The community could be requested to support the feeding programs in the organization by submitting their farm produce when they harvest or have surplus.
