Training Course Brief
One of the key reasons that there is no meaningful development in Africa is the lack of capacity by beneficiaries to implement sustainable programmes.

The situation is compounded further with majority of these NGOS/CBOs depending only one donor or none at all, while a few others have numerous donors willing to partner with them through funding their various proposals and programs. The biggest challenge facing most of these organizations is lack of adequate appropriate in-house capacity to attract the right donors to the organization. Many other programmes .With the right skills and capacity, there are thousands of donors for available to fund your projects out there. However many organizations, unfortunately, are still grappling with key fundamentals issues such as; where are the donors? What projects get funding? What the current donor priorities are?
