WFPI either "bolts on" to an existing initiative and becomes a stakeholder - in this case individuals participate with WFPI endorsement (e.g. MSF tele-reading and guidelines, TB work, teaching in Mozambique, Haiti and Ethiopia, ultrasound development with Imaging the World) OR the project/activity is set up entirely by WFPI (to date, tele-reading support - see here)
WFPI is not a donor: regrettably our revenue does not allow us to fund parallel international work and to date, WFPI has not set up a system for awarding regular affiliated project grants
We know these guidelines seem "dry" for work that is fuelled by engagement and volunteerism. Please understand that they are built upon WFPI's international governance experience since its creation in 2011 and the outreach experience of individuals contributing to WFPI. But we are here to provide a forum for sharing, networking and collaborating. That is our primary goal. So if you think synergies with WFPI for your project could be a positive step, contact us!
