Session 1: Mastering the Non-Profit Writing: What and How? 

Unlearning key concepts that have plagued our non-profit writing. For years, we have been complaining about our writing and yet we tend to repeat the vicious cycle of producing the same work over and over again. Here, through criticizing our own work, we together identify, the ways to master our non-profit writing. Come with the heat that is open to critics and mind that is ready to unload its burden. A few key concepts to take back home – and voila! You push your journey back to the track!

Session 2: Project Cycle and the Underlying Concepts

For all those unattended, this is a little serious topic. Here, we identify the key concepts, try to define them in the way we can relate (and oh! The vague definitions are always there!) and try to see what a good project would look like. The concepts are internationally recognized and equally homegrown. But, you don't need to be wary of big words – we know how to slice the cake! 

Session 3: Using Data and Statistics for Documents 

Do you find statistics a difficult buy, a difficult skill to master? Well, we make it easy here. Statistics and data are no more a problem when you know where to find, how to use, and how not to use. This session dedicates itself on know-how of how we (and others around) use the data, how we link our work to the existing data, and have some practice session. Keep your laptop handy!

Session 4: Monitoring and Evaluation: Debunking the Myths and Exercising the Gist

Monitoring and evaluation form formidable components on project cycle for many. Just because these components are mostly based on data and statistics, they don't come with incomprehensible cores.

Session 7: Technological Add-Ons: Adding Value to Your Documents

Newer technological know-how will greatly enhance quality of what you write. If you are not familiar with the awesome tools, mostly available for free, we are here to help you. Don't worry if you are not a tech-geek, these tools are for commoners!
