WESTERN BALKANS – The RYCO Local Branch Office in Serbia in cooperation with the OSCE Mission to Serbia publishes the “Beginner’s Manual for Project Proposal Writing 101”.
This Manual is conceptualized to support the advancement of project writing skills for the successful design of projects and initiatives that can connect the Western Balkan youth. It supports beginner practitioners to understand the structure of grant proposals, develop project elements and create inclusive youth projects.
By offering a practical resource, the Manual includes a variety of exercises and tools on the topic. Most importantly, it draws on lessons learned from several trainings organized by RYCO and the OSCE field operations in the Western Balkans.
The three thematic parts which lay at the center of the “Beginner’s Manual for Project Proposal Writing 101” are:
- Unwrapping grant-making logic and understanding processes behind the grant life cycle;
- Highlighting the importance of participation and diversity in youth mobility projects;
- Guiding through major project elements and technical aspects of project writing.
RYCO and the OSCE Mission to Serbia hope that this Manual will serve as an important companion to all interested individuals, organizations and secondary schools.
