Project proposals writing is considered a specialized skill, and there are specialists for this type of writing who have acquired their skills through specialized training or on job training. There are also practitioners who have acquired their skills through diligent work or working closely with their colleagues. Depending on the extent to which those in charge of preparing project proposals have the necessary skills, the chances of success in funding the proposed project are higher and vice versa.
The content of this course is dedicated to the writing of project proposals from a gender perspective. The course contains several sections including on the process of selecting the donor, the basic characteristics of project proposal, the concept paper, the contents of a solid proposal and the steps for preparing the project proposal, all from a gender perspective.

At the end of the course there will be a final exam to test the acquired knowledge.
