In Annual Report, Funding & Partnerships, In-Country Forums

I thought I knew a lot, but now we connect the dots…

After a break of four years, EU-CORD’s Funding and Partnership Workshop was re-vamped and given its first outing when, over 3-days, thirty participants got together to explore and deep-dive various aspects of institutional fundraising and EU development financing. The course was based on the DG INTPA Resource Map, which was developed for EU-CORD members in 2023.

Facilitator Ruth Faber said,

‘ The knowledge of people in the room was very high. They are already successful fundraisers and understand the fundamentals of grant writing well. What was lacking, and what we could spend time on, was exploring the linkages between donor thinking and policy and how this is articulated in the final articulation of call guidelines.

With participants from Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda, there was a genuine appreciation for the chance to meet and learn from ‘local’ EU-CORD members. Moving beyond just email contacts, participants made personal connections, which, as we have learned over the years, is the basis for building organisational partnerships.

With the course materials and programme already prepared, we’re excited about possibly organising one or two more workshops in 2025!
