Hi Ana,
Although it's late, I thank you for the opportunities you send us. I wanted to succeed this one and my concept note was selected but I had difficulties to have the latest information because I was in conference outside the country. However, I would like to ask you if there is an opportunity to continue.
Thank you again for our sisterhood.
Have a nice weekend.

Congrats on your efforts.
Yes, submitting proposals/applications is a training one cannot avoid if one wants to be successful in grant requests!
I advise you to have all basic paperwork always ready and updated in order to apply within the deadlines.
Most opportunities are not a stand alone call, they are recurrent (yearly, at least).
So get ready for the next round.
Best,
Ana Isabel

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply;
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills.
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> Resources and use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you.
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others.
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests - they will enlighten and inspire your network.
