I posted in the campfire last month about the local NGO I am currently working with in rural Malawi.
We have recently started the UK AID’s SCCF grant application with the following project title…
Enhancing resilience in rural Malawi through sustainable livelihood initiatives
We aim to band our beekeeping, tailoring and agriculture project under one banner for this grant. The agricultural initiative has already been active for 3 years, and the other two branches of the project (tailoring, bees) have been fully budgeted and have key aims and outcomes addressed etc.
Malawi has about 20-22% of its population who are unemployed, and even those who are employed, usually informal employment linked to agriculture, attaining forms of value-added production is extremely hard; mainly due to the prevalence of Maize, Tobacco and other primary commodities.
There is more info about the SCCF here: https://www.ukaiddirect.org/apply/sccf/
I was wondering if I could use this area of the forum to ask questions, and perhaps have people provide insights on how to answer specific questions in the grant; given that I’m working on it with very limited support.
I have support for the quantitative side, for budgets etc.
However, I do need support for the long winded qualitative side, for questions such as: "How will you address gender inequality issues with this project?"
If I provided the key information for certain questions, could some people, if they have time of course, chip in a little and help me get this done before April 30th?
