Our meeting will be moderatedDilyana Gyurova, part of the DigiComs team and Impact Drive.
What are organizations with a mission?- NGOs, social entrepreneurs and social businesses, civic initiatives, all who are committed to changing the world for the better. What they have in common is their commitment to a specific cause and the fact that very often they are focused on achieving their socially significant mission and do not always manage to present themselves, their struggles and achievements to the general public.
Impact Drive's digital communicators are here to support civil sector organizations in precisely this aspect of their work – to create content for the communication needs of an individual initiative or project in a professional and sustained manner and while respecting the guiding principles of the specific cause.
