Proposal writing serves an important function for humanitarian agencies and NGOs. The ability of NGOs to deliver aid is dependent on their access to funds, and the quality of project proposals determines whether or not funds are ultimately received. Writing proposals is a common and necessary task for staff in various levels and roles throughout the organisation, nevertheless, the task can be challenging, and requires skills in both project design and writing. This course explores the necessary skills and knowledge required for proposal writing, and allows space for both theory and practical application of proposal writing skills.

Course aim:

To provide participants with the necessary skills and knowledge required to develop and write targeted and clear proposals in the humanitarian sector.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

• List the components and logical flow of proposals ; • Explain what makes proposals effective; • Adapt proposals to fit donor requirements, preferences and guidelines; • Use tools, such as the logical framework, to design proposals with clear logic; • Use tools to effectively plan for proposal writing in a project team ; • Identify appropriate writing styles and practices

Registration is from 8:30, with the course starting at 9:00 and concluding by 5:00. The day is broken up into four sessions, separated by a lunch break and coffee/ tea breaks in the morning and afternoon.
