The Marist Province of West Africa Holds Workshop on Proposal Writing

A Virtual Workshop was organized by the Province of West Africa on Proposal Writing for the entire membership of the Administrative Unit. The program which was on 11th December 2021 focused on one of the priorities of the first Provincial Chapter, the sustainability in the Mission.. 

The workshop, which was facilitated by Misean Cara‘s West African Development Mentor, Mr. Michael Osei Nkrumah, focused on basic elements of Proposal writing. 

Participants were taken through Project Cycle Management, namely Problem Identification, Analysis Design, Implementation, and Evaluation. Possible reasons for the non-approval of proposals were discussed. Stakeholders’ involvement, insufficient needs assessment inadequate strategy development, sustainability issues, and inconsistent budgeting among other reasons were cited. 

In his opening address, the Provincial, Br. Cyprian Gandeebo, said that the work of evangelisation cannot be carried out by the brothers alone and expressed the need for networking and collaboration of the province with other groups and agencies who have a similar mission. He thus underlined the reason to get the brothers informed in project management skills to respond effectively to the needs of the people around us, especially children.  He encouraged the Brothers to take the workshop seriously, to get empowered to serve the province.

According to the office of the Project Team, this workshop was the first of two phases planned by the province. The second phase will evolve a few selected brothers who will be trained in projects management skills.
