Review of literature and thorough research of the issue to be addressed will ensure an accurate and compelling statement of need for your proposals. This type of documentation is also useful for donor relations materials, as well as for providing guidance for informed decision making and strategizing for your organization.
Strategic Planning and Development

This involves designing clear and well laid-out program strategies.
