Developing a grant proposal requires understanding of the intensity, magnitude and the context of problem the project intends to address.
During articulation of the problem, the management should ensure they provide a justification of the problem and urgency of the sought intervention. The project budget should not be dictated by the available grant but the project/program objectives and therefore, there is a need to justify the budget.
The management should be able to outline the nature of the problem in time context and sustainability of program or project.
At Tabison, we engage the management to understand their perception and the background information regarding the problem. Where the information is not readily available, we conduct quantitative analysis to understand the problem and help management to articulate the need for intervention to ensure effective use of donor resources.
