The overall goal of the training will be to demonstrate how infomercials can be utilized by NGOs to increase public awareness of an issue or service, to develop local philanthropic efforts, and to generate revenue for non-profit organizations. Infomercials: Forms and Function is designed as a highly participatory and interactive seminar, which will emphasize small group work and one-on-one work with the instructors.
The workshop will take place in Barnaul from January 18 to January 20,1999 for the Russian Far East, and January 22 to January 24, 1999 for Central Russia and Siberia. This training workshop is sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development, through the Eurasia Foundation.
