COURSE OUTCOMES

This practical course will teach you how to:

  • Design a project your donors will support
  • Plan, draft and edit a persuasive proposal

Through a combination of coached, live sessions on Zoom and self-study (downloadable course videos, worksheets and extra materials) you will learn how to:

  • Identify a project your donors will support
  • Design a project using Logical Framework Approach
  • Plan your proposal in a logical, persuasive way
  • Communicate clearly and in a way that keeps your readers interested and alert

The course addresses the challenges faced by development professionals in project planning and proposal writing in a way that allows for maximum practical work. While you will get all the theory you need, you will learn the steps and tools in a way that you can apply time after time after the course is over so that:

  • You will always know what to do each time you have to develop a proposal
  • Your proposals will be well-organised, clear and persuasive - contributing to better relations with donors and, more importantly, increased donor support
