How To Design & Fund International Development NGO Projects (paid course)

Price: $45

What the Course Will Provide You.

I will provide solutions to the challenges that I’ve seen in the form of documents and handbooks that you can download. You are free to use all of the templates, examples and handbooks that I’ve developed to get your organization running efficiently, develop donor relationships, get your projects running on track, and improve the lives of your community members.

You can use these course materials to:

– develop a brand-new project from scratch in response to a donor request for a proposal

– help a new staff member inherit and launch a project designed by a former staff member

– get a current project with challenges back on track.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • The course has been developed so that YOU can design a real, international development project, in real time, and package it in preparation for sharing with a donor. So you won’t just be learning how to do this, you will complete this course with a finished product ready to request funding.
  • This course provides a system for you to use in developing successful projects and includes the tools needed to assess and organize information about challenges that communities face, approach funding organizations, work side-by-side with communities to develop long-term, sustainable programs, empower communities to take full charge of programs once up and running.
