Many NGOs working on human rights have often found proposal writing a challenging task. Although conceptualizing a project can be fairly easy by examining the ground situation in the target community, but writing down the same on paper can be difficult. Funding agencies also demand complicated information in their proposal formats which further discourage NGOs.
In this context, we are providing some basic guidance to help NGOs understand the various aspects of a human rights project proposal and how it can be developed and presented to various donor agencies. Proposal formats can vary from one donor agency to another and besides, in many cases, donor agencies do not even ask for a full project proposal; they would prefer to receive a brief outline of the project initially. Nevertheless, a project proposal is a very important part of the fundraising process and it should remain a part of your work schedule whether there is a donor agency waiting to go through it or not. The basic information provided below will help you develop a ready framework that can be improvised whenever there is call for proposals on human rights.
