Training on proposal writing for CEDT’s team

The volunteer will be in charge of designing and implementing a training on proposal writing for CEDT’s team.

Objectifs

Community Empowerment and Development Team (CEDT) is a Cambodian NGO funded in 2009. CEDT pursues the objectives to strengthen urban and rural poor communities to improve their housing conditions, their livelihood, to access sustainable natural resources, to achieve security of tenure and to realize their housing rights. The approach that CEDT follows is a people-led, participatory planning process.

Since 2015, CEDT is implementing a Natural Resources Management (NRM) program. The team supports rural communities living in to be recognized as Community Protected Area or Community Forestry procedures. Following a conservation purpose, the recognition guarantees local communities exclusive right on sustainable use of natural resources, in return for management and patrolling of the area. Once the community could access to this status, CEDT also support them into designing and implementing the management plans of these CPAs/CFs.

CEDT is currently looking for funds to pursue its activities on NRM.

However, the team is limited to 4 people, including an executive director, a financial officer and two project managers.
For the moment, the executive director write proposals and asks the team for information/support, especially the financial officer.
Overall, the team as small experience on proposal writing and faces difficulties to understand some of the criterias of the calls for proposals.
The team is also learning in doing and does not have a mapping of the priorities or strategy on proposal writing.

The mission’s goal is to provide CEDT’s team with general knowledge on proposal writing, so the team’s members can better support the executive director.

2 practical training for the management team in charge of proposal writing will follow this mission.
The mission is complementary to the training on professional English.
