Write a Funding proposal and outline for youth centre

Status: In progress
Step: 
3

In order to get equipment from willing donators it is useful to have a outline of the project its goals and a budget estimate. This will help organizations to assess whether the Youth Center is something they can or would help with.

We are seeking help from neighbors who have had experience writing these sorts of proposals. However, we would greatly appreciate anyone how has a good idea to add.

Hello April and Ernest,

I agree that we need to seek out other alternatives. Has a project plan/business plan been written for the project? It would be useful even to have a 1 page description of the project: background, overview of project, goals/objectives of project, target population, evaluation plan and budget are usually the required areas. Let me know if you would like help in putting something together, if nothing is already prepared.

Hi Barb,

We don't have a plan yet but it would be great if you could get one started. You could use the wiki attached to this page if you like. That way Earnest can fill in any gaps.

thanks so much

Hi All,

I do agree with you Bard, having a plan outlining exactly our goals, target population, what we want to achieve by a year or two,evalaution process to assess whether we are meeting our target objectives and reviewing of the whole project will help us to organise ourselves well.

We will appreciate if you can put something together for us and you could use the wiki as attached as April said.

Regards

Hello Everyone,

Yes I could start a project plan. However, I will need to work with you Ernest to gather the information necessary to write the plan. April, would it be better to add this as a separate task so that there is no confusion about them and information doesn't get lost?

I will prepare a list of questions that will help to write the project plan and we can go from there, if that is okay.

Hello Everyone,

I have come up with a list of questions that should help in gathering all the necessary information for a project plan. Please take a look and make any suggestions. Ernest, if you could please take a look and share your thoughts and answers, it would be appreciated. Please do not hesitate to ask for clarification and leave blank any ones that you cannot answer. We can fill in gaps as we go. You can answer the questions right in the document and repost it. I will also add them to the wiki if that is easier.

Hello Ernest and April

I have completed a VERY rough draft of the project plan and I need some more input before continuing. I have attached it here for your review. Text in red is where I have a question/need more info. Areas highlighted in yellow are where I need info and/or I put something that I wasn't sure about and want to verify with you. Please have a look and get back to me so I can finish!

Best wishes,
Barb

WOW!
We certainly are very lucky to have you on board Barb. The plan looks great. I'm sure Ernest will be able to fill in the missing bits.
About the parent group nabbur. Here is some bits that I got from the about nabbur page:

NABUUR.com is a place on the Internet that connects:
Neighbours: people that want to take action now for the benefit of people in developing countries & Villages: people in need of knowledge, contacts, and new ideas to improve their lives.

People on NABUUR have in common that they are committed Global Citizens with a drive to do something to make a difference.
NABUUR.com offers a platform where people from Villages in developing countries and Neighbours from all over the world meet, share and act together toward new solutions. The progress and results are all visible on the website.
All services are free of charge for Neighbours and Villages.
This is possible because of donations from our Corporate Partners: the Dutch Postcode Lottery, HIVOS and SIDA.

keep up the great work
