Good written English is essential for the NGO workers of today. Most NGOs are in constant need of funding, and requests for that funding are almost always done in writing. In order to make the right impression and win the support of donors, your written presentation of your organization and its ideas and projects needs to be of high quality. In addition, many other activities that NGO workers participate in, such as making presentations at international or regional conferences or describing an organization’s vision and objectives on a website, require high-level writing skills.
This course is designed for upper-intermediate speakers of English who have mastered the basics of business writing. It focuses exclusively on important aspects of report writing.
