The student council at VID Oslo wishes to strengthen the students’ commitment to international work, hence we have established the project group for the VID fundraiser week to organise the fundraising campaign week for and with our students each year.
VID fundraiser week also wishes to strengthen the university’s social and diaconal profile by creating interest in and awareness of social injustice in the world. We will conduct an annual/biannual fundraising campaign to raise funds for projects working for poverty reduction.
VID fundraiser week
The fundraising lasts for a week, and may include various events and types of fundraising. We wish to challenge students and staff to donate (at least) NOK 100–150 each (= two beers) to the project.
VID fundraiser week is not intended to be a separate organisation, but supports projects run by established NGOs. These projects can vary from time to time.
The student council is responsible for VID fundraiser week and appoints a working group that can manage and set the programme for the fundraising campaign week. The student chaplain and deacon are members of the project group.
