Proposal Writing for Grants

Venue: Erbil – Iraq Registration Deadline: February 23, 2023 Training Date: March 05 to 07, 2023 Register before: February 13, 2023 to get 10% Discount


The grant proposal writing process is an essential activity for all grant-seeking NGOs. While all donor agencies request proposals, the grant writing process actually helps in planning, preparing and delivering results for your projects. But developing proposals can be challenging if you do not have the access to the tools, knowledge and resources. It can be a daunting task for NGOs especially when they have to provide enormous information about their proposed project, their organization and the budget in a proper framework.

Participant’s take away

Different donor agencies can have different proposal formats but the basic framework of any proposal remains the same. By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • List the components of proposals and reports and explain the logical flow connecting different components
  • Explain the purpose of proposals and reports, and outline what makes them effective
  • Show how to distinguish between the templates, requirements and processes for applying to different donors, appeals and funding streams
  • Shape proposals to fit donor requirements, preferences, and guidelines
  • Demonstrate the use of tools, such as the logical framework, to design proposals with clear logic
  • Produce accurate effective reports that are designed to meet the readers’ needs
  • Demonstrate the use of tools to effectively plan for single-author and collaborative proposal and report writing
  • Write concise clear proposals and reports using appropriate writing styles, formats, structures and graphics

To make it highly innovative, the trainer will use lectures, discussions, group work, and individual assignments to transfer the knowledge. The training will be conducted in a friendly environment where the participants will be encouraged to bring forward their queries and share their thoughts and opinions. Participative practical activities will reinforce individual and group learning. The training will be evaluated at every day’s end to know the shortcomings/lacking and will be improved for the next day.
