About the Course
Proposal and report writing serve important functions in humanitarian agencies and are common and necessary tasks for staff in various levels and roles throughout the organisation. 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.
This course will analyse and unpack the elements that make for an effective and successful proposal. Participants will be introduced to best practices in proposal writing, helping them to develop their knowledge, skills and efficacy in writing, presenting and defending proposals. Report writing will also be covered, equipping participants with techniques for writing clear and engaging reports that encourage the reader to act upon their recommendations
