Speaking to Aamer Naeem and Zahid Rehman of READ Foundation in our latest podcast episode from the Learning Post, Morven Loh of The Social Change Agency delves into the organisation’s hugely successful ‘Because She Can’ (Empower Her) appeal which ran during Ramadan this year and raised £1.2 million, smashing its £370,000 target.

The podcast episode looks at seizing opportunities, messaging, harnessing the support of local communities and communications partners, and why perhaps in this occasion, grassroots support outperformed digital.
