A total of 10 people including four members of the RFM coordinating team attended.

Seeing the need for technical assistance on proposal writing and the missed opportunities for funding migration work, the Franciscan Network for Migrants offered a workshop with the purpose of providing the local RFM teams with the information and tools necessary to apply for funding and administer grants.

 During the workshop we covered: the different types of donors, donor motivations, the components of maintaining healthy relationships between donors and recipients, and how to design a boilerplate proposal that can be adapted to various types of requests. We used the Missionszentrale der Franziskaner (MZF) guidelines as a case study.
