On Thursday morning (May 31, 2012), 14 representatives from LIN’s grantees participated in a “Grant Report Writing Skills” workshop at the office of Horizon Capital Group, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.
Ms. Elizabeth Pham – LIN’s Philanthropy Advisory Service (PAS) Manager – opened the workshop with a speech presenting major elements for grant reporting such as: common components of a grant report, grant report writing process, success idicator, illustrations of several individual cases and operating expenses, etc.
Afterward, Ms. Dang Thu Huong from 5gio-sang organization shared her experience on writing grant reports for the Football Campaign for disadvantaged children, which was sponsored by LIN in 2010 and 2011. 5gio-sang shared its lesson of utilizing questionnaires on beneficiaries’ satisfaction as well as the assistance from skilled volunteers during the process.
After the break, participants had the opportunity to practice writing their own grant reports using LIN’s template. This workshop is sponsored by GFCF for LIN as part of the LIN Community Grant 2011-2012.
“If this workshop had been done earlier, I think our grant report for LIN would certainly have been better. After this workshop, I realized that I have been carrying out various successful projects but I also need skills and experiences to write a good grant report,” said Ms. Luu Kim Cuc – director of Binh Loi Social Center.
