report writing

Adhamin Gebre with VLM volunteer John Bradley in Mekele. Coming from a background in accountancy, John worked with the Daughters of Charity and their staff on various aspects of their relationships with donors and funders.

Writing, drafting and editing reports or proposals are transferrable skills held by many individuals across every sector.

Volunteers with these abilities are much sought after by our partners as their projects rely on many international funders and donors for financial support. This carries with it a substantial amount of reporting and administrative work.

The presence of a native English speaker with the skills to write reports and correspond with funders provides a strong support to our partners and enables better service provision across their projects.

Volunteers taking up this role are referred to as ‘capacity building volunteers.’ Alongside the administrative work, these volunteers are also expected to share their skills and know-how with our partners through one-to-one mentoring as well as group training workshops.
