The purpose of this manual is to provide women's groups with ideas on how to find finance to start their projects. A problem in many community projects is not lack of finance but leek of knowledge that funds exist and can be obtained. Moreover, institutions that provide resources have their own procedures and need to be approached in a manner with which many community organizations are not familiar.

The manual, therefore, offers a step-by-step guide on how to approach funding institutions, by covering the following topics: gathering information, assessing resources, selecting a funding source and developing a financial strategy for an organization. It also provides a cheek-list of some of the general criteria and priorities specified by bilateral and multilateral funding agencies. It gives detailed guidelines and a sample format of the structure and layout of each element of writing a proposal, that is, the contents of the funding proposal from the title page to the appendices. In addition, a series of paperwork samples of documents and forms associated with fund raising and financial planning are given. These include a letter to a funding agency, a budget and a resource assessment form. The final section contains a listing of aid agency addresses, governmental institutions, foundations, private agencies and church groups which provide funding for projects.

Although the proposal writing is not specifically designed for housing programmes, this guide is a valuable source for training community groups or junior staff members in housing agencies who have not had practice in writing funding proposals or managing the financial aspects of programmes. Above all, this is a valuable training resource, because the manual is easy to read and attractively presented.
