Sample of Consulting Projects

  • Arogya Agam

    Area: India
    Year: 2016

    The vision of Arogya Agama is to build a just society by securing rights, health and development for marginalised people (especially women and children in poor communities) in Tamil Nadu, southern India. The main issue for the NGO at the moment is a lack of monetary resources, which may be partly due to a change of polices by previous donors. Besides that, international private donors, for example from France, have withdrawn their support. Currently many donors perceive India, and especially Tamil Nadu, as developed regions no longer in need of aid but rather of trade and diplomacy agreements. However, this region is still plagued by pockets of poverty and is one of the most severely affected by HIV in India. Therefore, organisations such as Arogya Agam are still in need of funding in order to improve people'™s living standards in the area. Consequently, 180DC KCL identified and worked with three critical areas, which were Funding Strategy, Social Media Strategy and Volunteer and Outreach Strategy.


    Area: UK
    Year: 2017

    The Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) is a London based charity which focuses on issues of global governance and how to reach meaningful collaboration on global problems such as climate change, fair taxes and workersaA€A™ rights. The award winning organization has been recognized for its innovation and thought leadership. The founder of the organization John Bunzl has just authored a book about Simpol aA€A“ helping people to first understand the problems of global governance such as destructive global competition, the race to the bottom and spiral dynamics. We helped with research and contacted groups/individuals to promote the message of the book and Simpol. We thus worked closely with John, and reached out to high profile contacts in academia, business, NGOs and politics. Furthermore, we provided marketing and social media strategy.

    Year: 2017

    Edukasyon.ph is a social enterprise in the Education Technology sector, located in the Philippines, with a mission of helping students making more informed and higher educational choices that will help them achieve their dream career. The two main challenges that Edukasyon is currently facing are market expansion and improvement of their business model, in which we provided business solutions that highlighed the most profitable revenue streams. This was primarily based on a competitor analysis of similar education tech companies in India, the US and Indonesia. Hereafter, we provided strategic solutions in marketing and product development that allowed for penetration in these markets, along with how to generate the highest possible revenues.

  • Al Sudaniya

  • AHOY

    Area: UK
    Year: 2016

    The AHOY centre uses the medium of sailing, rowing and water based activities to break down social barriers and provide innovative training.

They offer training to disadvantaged young people (aged 8 to 21), at Risk youth and those excluded from main stream education, and disabled people. The biggest challenge facing the Charity is raising funds and being able to have a continuity of income so that we continue with our work. With continuity of funding in place we will be able to be guarantee that the programmes we run are secure. As such, we provided consulting services on how to improve public relations and increase and sustain fundraising.

  • Kidscape

    Area: UK
    Year: 2015

    Kidscape deliver child safeguarding and antibullying training programs into schools and other organisations.

We have been tasked with accentuating Kidscape's message and finding ways to increase the number of organisations Kidscape works with. We believe the solution will be centered around putting into place mechanisms one a training program has been delivered in order to increase word of mouth and leverage social media.
