A challenging but essential element of project design

A challenging but essential element of project design.

How many times have we all dreaded having to construct a Log Frame? If you ask most NGO Practitioners what is the most difficult part of project development or the part they hate the most, many will agree Log Frames can be incredibly challenging.

With funding becoming more competitive and donors demanding a greater degree of grantee accountability, even seasoned professionals are called to improve the processes of project design. Logical Frameworks, or Log Frames, are notoriously confusing and difficult to develop. This is because creating a good logical framework requires both a holistic and detailed understanding of the project. This comprehensive overview and understanding is rare during the planning and funding stage, especially when the project design is still in flux. Even so, a draft of a Log Frame can be very useful for planning, managing, and fundraising.

In this online course, you will explore the essential to perfect in designing logical, effective, and attractive projects which is the key factor to convince the donors. Most importantly, the course will help you demonstrate to your donors that you have a mastery of designing logical, effective, and attractive projects.

By the end of this course, we will help you become comfortable with developing Log Frames so you can go forward with confidence!
