It is just a few days to the end of the 2018 partner program Batch A (Fellows, Interns and Ambassadors). Some have already submitted their reports or proposals or both. If you haven’t please ensure you’re working on your proposal for submission to SI4DEV and possible crowdfunding. Deadline for submission: September 14, 2018.
Some questions and answers below on the proposal and monthly reports…
Q: How large can the budget be?
A: We suggest anything between N100,000 and N1,000,000. Remember, you will fundraise a good part of this budget and then SI4DEV will match what you receive. Tokens generated on the website will be added to the pot.
Q: Must I use the SI4DEV pilot proposal template?
A: This is not mandatory but preferred. Send your proposal as long as it has all required sections. 
a. Problem Statement
b. Solution – Implementation Plan
c. Goals and Objectives
d. The Evaluation Plan
e. Project Sustainability
f. Experience and Capacity
To receive a completion certificate and induction into the Alumni, you must submit your monthly reports from April to August.
Q: Must I submit all 5/6 months of the program?
A: Submit what you have – the board will decide appropriate number required to graduate
Q: I did not get or have the time to work with my assigned mentor, can I graduate?
A: The mentoring module is not compulsory. They were to offer technical assistance as you worked on your proposals but you can send your proposal anyway without their input if ready.
Q: Do all the reported activities have to be specifically organized by SI4DEV?
