NDT relies on fundraising to deliver its mission and this role provides the structure and drive for that ongoing fundraising effort.
The priority is to establish an approach which aligns with the overall NDT strategy and this role includes creating and maintaining a fundraising plan, researching and identifying potential income sources, maintaining a database of fundraising contacts and networks, planning and delivering fundraising events, applying for the relevant grants and funding, liaising with corporate partners and more.
We are looking for an experienced fundraising professional who can commit several hours per month (or more if you can) to help NDT establish its new fundraising approach. It is an exciting opportunity and pivotal for this new strategic period and to steer the NDT team. :: READ MORE ::
We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be taking part in the 24-hour netball marathon hosted by the International Netball Federation and Netfit Netball on Saturday 3rd October.
Our session will be run by the extremely talented Benedicta and our partners Akwaaba Volunteers in Ghana. The session will focus on fitness, skills and fun! Join us from the comfort of your own home via the Netfit Netball Facebook page where the marathon will be streamed live for free.
Together, the INF and Netfit identified three needs within the global netballing community which this event will bridge.
The INF and Netfit are asking for donations in exchange for a Netball e-Notebook which will contain worksheets and session plans to be completed throughout the marathon. 100% of the proceeds will go to the INF to help fund nations affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fundraising volunteers help support and deliver a variety of fundraising activities for the Netball Development Trust. This will include carrying out research into possible funding sources; maintaining a database with fundraising contacts and networks and delivering fundraising events, supported by other volunteers. It is about identifying financial opportunities to support the programmes delivered by the Trust.

What is a communication volunteer?
Communication and marketing volunteers shout out about the great work that we do at the Netball Development Trust. These volunteers will help support the online and print communication we create to promote the activities and programmes carried out by the charity.
What’s in it for you?
I first considered undertaking a volunteer trip with the Netball Development Trust last summer, after visiting Cape Verde on holiday. Seeing the conditions and spirit of local people there, made me feel very humble and even embarrassed at the flamboyant and materialistic life we all enjoy in this country. I decided that instead of holidaying in such countries, I would prefer to try to offer some sort of help, in whatever small way I could.
I had already learnt of the Netball Development Trust, through Hannah Reed, who has undertaken many trips with the Trust, to Uganda, and I decided this would be something I might like to try. I was already a netball coach and had coached and run my own club for the last 8 years. :: READ MORE ::
Our NDT Kenya coordinator, Mr Joseph Dawson Olita, spent the 2019 Independence weekend (1-2 June 2019) in Kitui County of Eastern Kenya visiting our 6 NDT girls who are on an education scholarship there with Katwala High School for Girls. He met the 6 girls and their coaches and later held discussions with the school principal on strengthening the scholarship programme. He also watched the 6 girls play their sub-county netball finals where they beat Kisasi Secondary school 79-1 (not a typo) to emerge sub-county champions ahead of the County competitions next week. We are very proud of the girls and we will support and keep tabs on them all through.

“Super six selected for full secondary school scholarships because of their netball skills from NDT Kenya”
We are delighted to share this Incredible news with you - Six of our NDT Kenya girls have received secondary school scholarships purely based on the netball they have learnt under NDT.
It’s a full scholarship – all their tuition fees are being paid - they just have to pay for their meals, transport and personal items. They left Bungoma county for Katwala High School in Eastern Kenya on 13 Jan 2019.
They were scouted by our partner Joseph Nzioka Makau (from Eastern Kenya) who is an umpire and scouts for scholarships for netball girls. He is also the national fixtures secretary for the Kenya Netball federation, and has been a friend of NDT for a few years, helping at tournaments and sharing his experience.
He selected the girls during NDT tournaments he previously attended.
Whilst on tour 2018, volunteer Camilla Buchanen prepared a film on behalf of Sky sports, about netball in Uganda and the life of Peace Proscovia. We are delighted that we feature in it, especially as it was shown on SkySports on Tuesday 27th November!
NDT has actively measured our impact across many different areas of our programmes; statistical and anecdotal. We are really proud of the successes and differences the programme has made to date and the impact we are having on children, teachers and volunteers we work with. We already recognise that this process can be developed and will continue to strengthen this over the next year.

"We are delighted to share news of our fantastic partnership with Kip Living On, based in Mukono, Uganda. http://www.kipliving.org/
Kip Living On Charity Foundation is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to using sports as a tool to promote health and wellness, impart knowledge, skills and awareness amongst the children and youth, looking after destitute, empowering women, preventing HIV/AIDS, drug de-addiction, and awareness about environment and hygiene.

This recent report (attached) summarises the progress they have made already this year including conducting a survey on sexual health, to act as a benchmark. This will help us to better understand the impact of our project, and how we may need to make changes to make the most difference.
We are very excited to work more and more with this wonderful group of coaches"
