DIPLOMA IN PROPOSAL WRITING AND FUNDRAISING.
Getting funding for a project is not just a matter of luck, but a matter of learning a few skills and improving them each time one pen down to write a proposal. The approach that one takes to sell an idea will determine if the funds will be granted or not. The whole project should be very persuasive to woe the funder to your side. It is like a beautiful girl who has many suitors asking for her hand in friendship, the best suitor normally emerges as the winner all factors are kept constant.
Those who fund projects want to invest in projects that will solve a specific problem produce tangible benefits with lasting effects and meet the urgent need if it is a crisis. It is very important also to understand the funder and what the funder specializes in funding. Some organizations deal with different sectors only or majorly, for example, health, education, shelter, food, and the girl child. The biggest challenge facing most of these organizations is the lack of adequate appropriate in-house capacity to attract the right donors to the organization. With the right skills and capacity, there are thousands of donors available to fund projects out there. However many organizations, unfortunately, are still grappling with key fundamental issues such as; where are the donors.
