Winning Program Designs: A Write Shop (Proposal Writing)

Various development projects rely on partnerships and support from other organizations, whether it be from the government, private sector, non-government organizations or international organizations. To make these partnerships happen, organizations are often required to submit proposals which undergo competitive screening. As such, proposals have to be well-written, with program designs and project details carefully planned and thought of. This course discusses the determining factors that set apart winning program designs and project proposals from the rest. The different kinds of development programs will be presented to help the organization choose which approach is most suited for the organization’s needs. The course also teaches technical writing guidelines and standard formats for project proposals, along with sample proposals and writing workshops. At the end of the training, participants are expected to understand the basics of proposal writing, and to be able to craft their own proposals and presentations.
