Training on the Basics of Project Writing

Basic Project Writing Training is intended for those who want to acquire the knowledge, skills and experience necessary for writing projects.

Writing project proposals is one part of the initiation and planning process. It plays a very important role since without a proposal there can be no project. Project writing trainings focused on one donor are very frequent. However, we believe that these trainings do not provide the participants with a clear understanding of the process of developing a project idea, which then results in the participants feeling confused and unsure. Our job is to teach you how to shape a project idea into any type of project application.

Others about KULT

Smatramo da je rad Instituta izuzetno uspješan i prepoznatljiv po svojim aktivnosti u cijeloj BiH. Važna komponenta je što su aktivnostima obuhvaćene sve sredine kako u F BIH tako i u RS -u a vezano za praćenje realizacije projekata kroz monitoring koji provodi Institut. Važan aspekt je i medijsko praćenje pomenutih aktivnosti koji su ujedno i promocija rada Instituta.“ – Sejo, korisnik usluga Instituta.
