Background and objectives
CYNBI a registered NGO in Nigeria is in need of volunteer Grant writers to prepare grant proposals, beginning by performing research. To develop their proposals, grant writers familiarize themselves with an organization's programs, goals and financial needs. They also look into potential funding sources. After compiling all the information, they need, grant writers compose and will not submit their proposals. So the role of the volunteers is to support CYNBI to get good and skilled proposal/project developers with good writing skills and relationship with donors. The volunteer will search and do analysis of call for proposal as well as seek other alternative resource mobilisation strategy to help raise funds for CYBNI work for Youth in Governance and Politics, Nutrition, Smallholders Farmers, HIV/Aids and Community Development.
