To indicate your interest in joining our proposal, please contribute an introductory post to this thread.
A personal introduction to your role at your organization
An overview of your current deployments (what towns, schools, or locations are you in?)
What current client devices (make / model) do you use with RACHEL and how many have you deployed to date?
We would then ask you to identify your preliminary planned deployments moving forward, in light of the potential donated hardware funding. These questions match the grant request reporting guidelines.
List of precise locations you would like to expand to (e.g. Manyara Secondary School)
Number of devices needed to expand there (# of RACHEL and # of client devices needed)
Total number of people using the devices (usually more than 1 per device, but not always)
Desired quantitative program impact (e.g. number of hours devices used, reduced absenteeism by X% in school, increase in test schools of X% in subject X, etc.)
Links to current summaries or descriptions about program operations
Do you have an planned budget for your programs?
This endeavor is our first group application for a grant. We’ve put together some qualifications and requirements here. Please review these and make sure you’re in agreement with them!
