Feedback from Participants
“This year I decided to undertake a short course in Grant writing and MEAL with Keno institute. Upon completion I wrote a proposal and submitted to USADF, I proposed to Scale Up feed production in the Northern Region. My proposal has been selected out of 142 applicants only 7 were selected and we are among the seven. I personally recommend Keno institute for positive work and knowledge for we the Northern Province Cooperative Marketing Union Kasama have benefited cause the coming of this funding will curb the high prices of feeds and create more employment opportunities. Do not hesitate to learn visit Keno institute believe me you will never be the same at the organisation you are working for! “
Peter Musukwa – Business Manager
My expectation in the Technical Grants Writing Course “was to have an overview of how to go about writing grants proposals, what to pay attention to and how to go about with the budget. I learnt much more beyond my expectations”
Mercy M. Fandamu-CBU
I received a thorough overview of how to write a grant, “to the extent of coming up with a draft proposal although not yet completed. I am now confident I can write many more grants.”
