You are part of a health promotion taskforce. Your taskforce has devised a health promotion intervention to address the health needs of the community. In order to implement the program, your team will be applying for funds in the form of a Tender Application (also known as a Funding Proposal).
Your Proposal must not exceed 3000 words (excluding cover page and Annexes) and include the following:
– Executive Summary (Project summary)
– Background and Needs Assessment
– Project design and implementation plan
– Evaluation plan
– Staff/Team
– Budget
– Annexes
– Stakeholder matrix
– Project Activity Schedule (Gantt chart)
– Program Logic
– Map of project location (optional)
While you will work as a team in class, and your tender application will be on the same, agreed topic, your submission will be individual and each student will need to write their own proposal. Students should not copy each other’s work but work collaboratively in developing ideas.
