Organizations, programs and projects use money to implement their interventions. These interventions range from research (system appraisals), development (provision of services and facilities) to policy reform. These implementers develop proposals to funders to demonstrate how they are best suited for such support. Developing convincing proposals takes training but perfection requires skill gained through years of experiential application, thorough knowledge of the sectors, industries, and communities being served, and how the resources being applied for will deliver results efficiently and in line with funder policies and requirements. It also requires knowledge of resource providers to be approached. It requires packaging such requests through expert writing that clearly presents how the projects’ Theories of Change (ToC).
Right Track Africa (RTA), through Julius Nyangaga, has been consulted to draft and support the development of such proposals. His contributions have been successful for a number of initiatives. In the process, RTA has gained adequate knowledge and experience proposal writing.
