Working towards social transformation is never a straight road. The painstaking effort undertaken by all actors at various levels of governance such as the policy-making, enforcement and grassroot levels must work as a cohesive unit to truly tackle the issue of human trafficking in order to effectively eradicate what we now understand to be modern slavery.
This series incorporates classroom style learning of theory and hands-on practice, post-workshop support for participants, ultimately culminating with an NGO Incubator Pitch where the winner will not only receive a tech gadget to help them with their work, but also the much envied opportunity to develop one’s tech capacity through means and platforms provided by TechSoup for a period of one year!
All eligible NGOs will be competing to showcase how they have applied what they have learnt from the workshops – from data visualisation, graphic design skills and video making tools – to help them address gaps and deficiencies in their campaigns and lobbying efforts.
The NGO Incubator Pitch is an opportunity for NGOs to become more effective whether it is in engaging with victims of human trafficking or to create awareness in order to develop better infrastructure for victims of human trafficking.

What does participating in the NGO Incubator Pitch entail?
All participating NGOs will be delivering a pitch to our panel of judges with a focus on techniques learnt from the previous workshops and how they have incorporated it into a campaign. This campaign must be developed and implemented in one or all of these categories:
- Category A: Storytelling via still photography
- Category B: Storytelling through the use of videos
- Category C: A fundraising donor and communication plan
Please note that the campaign mentioned above MUST be related to the issue of human trafficking and cannot be an existing campaign. This is to ensure that participants start together, and that results of their campaign is fair, and reflective of skills gained from this series of workshops.
Is it possible for a few NGOs to pitch together?
Yes, one or more NGOs may collaborate and pitch together with the approval of the Organizer. There is a maximum of 3 NGOs per group. However, the prize will be awarded to the principal NGO as stated in the Application Form. The responsibility of dividing the prize to the partner NGOs will then fall to the principal NGO.
Is it possible for one NGO to submit more than one application?
All eligible NGOs are only allowed to submit one application. In the case of a joint application between two or three NGOs, the main applicant (as stated in the Application Form) and the sub-applicants will count as one application, and is not allowed to submit another. This is better illustrated in the example below:
Tenaganita and EMPOWER decides to pitch together and submit a joint-application. Tenaganita is named the main applicant in the Application Form. EMPOWER is now the sub-applicant. Neither Tenaganita or Empower is allowed to submit another application
