Case Example of Skill Transfer

“In January 2012 my Superior asked me to be officially responsible for resource mobilization of the Province. Since I was still the financial administrator and a part-time student at the same time, we agreed that she identifies [sic] other sisters so that we could work as a team. Four sisters were brought on board and we formed a resource committee. The Superior gave us a list of 14 needs to consider. I drafted letters to the donors to introduce our team. Interestingly most donors preferred to support institutional projects and those that touched the life of the community. Each of the five of us was to write proposal as directed during the meeting. They sent them to me to polish and post to the donors. These four sisters had no prior knowledge before we worked together with what I acquired from ASEC. They appreciated the opportunity since it was an eye opener to them. I am glad they can now do better in proposal writing.”
