Project Development and Grant Writing Workshop Series

Programme Overview

Donors are increasingly willing to fund community developed projects that are sustainable and impactful. After several years of AAU analysing successful projects and proposals, it has been found that projects developed by individuals and institutions are more likely to be successful, sustainable and impactful if they are developed and planned with the community as part of the long term community or institutional development strategy. The Project Planning and Grant Writing Workshop aims to train delegates on the strategies, tools and requirements to better define community and institutional problems, design community-based solutions and write a winnable proposal for funding.
