 An International Workshop on
   Course Overview
   Sources of international grant money from private or public organisations such as World Bank, United Nation,
   European Union, USAID, DFID and others provide a total amount of assistance each year totalling over a quarter of
   a trillion dollars. These donors, Charity organisations and international funders require project proposals to be well-
   thought out and carefully planned as well as executed efficiently. Without direct project funding, most organisations
   and individuals would not be able to accomplish their project goals. If you are seeking external funding, writing clear,
   thorough and targeted project proposals is therefore essential to you and your organisation.

   Preparing a successful written proposal requires an organized, systematic approach to effectively convey your
   story. It demands disciplined strategies to align your project idea and content to what a funding body or donor is
   looking for. This workshop is an intensive and detailed introduction to the process, structure, and skill of professional
   project proposal writing. This workshop provides a step-by-step writing process to deal with any and all application
   requirements. The workshop is designed for both novice and experienced project developers and grant/fund seekers,
   it is a comprehensive, hands-on training that covers writing award winning proposals. This workshop is characterized
   by its ability to act as a thorough overview, introduction, and refresher at the same time. Effectively strategizing your
   project proposal idea is what this workshop will emphasize. What’s more, you will learn why project proposal writing
   is much different than other kinds of writing. Ultimately, this workshop will illustrate how each component of the
   funding/grant proposal represents an opportunity to use proven techniques for generating support.

   What you will learn
   In this 1-day “Intensive Knowledge Transfer” workshop you will improve your access to international finance and
   funding through your best practice project proposal. Participants will learn the entire proposal writing process
   with a solid understanding of not only the ideal proposal structure, but a holistic understanding of the essential
   factors, which determine whether or not your project gets funded. In addition to learning the basic components
   of a fundable project proposal, successful approaches, and the do’s and don’ts of funding/grant writing, this
   workshop is infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of the fundamental process. Participants
   will be given some interactive exercises using samples of the e-book based templates used by international
   project proposal writers. Participants will leave this course with new skills and the ability to apply those skills
   to the needs of your own organization and community. This workshop, simply put, is designed to get results by
   creating the fundamentals for professional funding proposal writers.
