Appreciative inquiry 5D Project cycle
“The basis of planning and implementing projects and initiatives” This program has been developed depending on the needs of individuals and teams to motivate them to start social initiatives and innovative projects. Then, it moves forward to enable individuals to plan their initiatives and projects successfully by introducing them to a set of tools and concepts that approved its efficiency in many sectors especially the community one, like: the concepts of Social Inquiry, Resource based management and the stages of 4D cycle: Discovery- Dream- Design (Planning)- Delivery - Re-Discovery and evaluating the impact.
This program is based on the basic elements of collecting information on the subject of initiatives and ensuring greater participation of the community in an initiative, from the stage of planning and using the information in the project proposal. The program also enables the participant in this general framework of communication and building messages that direct to the initiative team, beneficiaries and supporters. By empowering applicants with initiatives and groups that deliver their initiatives to create an understanding of the financial and administrative system in line with donor requirements and foster confidence in the initiative in the community.
The program introduces several tools to motivate thinking of a new way of interventions based on a general understanding of the community and its components through the context and understanding of the links and relationships of both the influence and impact within them within the context. The tool journey moves from the general understanding of the society and influential people to the private understanding of the intervention of community groups and attention to the role of stakeholders involved in intervention from the general community to understand the intervention accurately based on the general context .The program presents tools for analysis of relations and tools to understand the impact of the development team within this context. It is also important to present tools that help us to understand the needs of the community and choose priorities for intervention based on the resources owned by the teams and the impact that results on the overall context in society by the development teams or to find new interventions of greater benefit and more accurately studied to find a central impact in the community. The tools also help to understand the role of partners and the consideration of the intervention by the teams as a part of all interventions for the rest of the teams and they help to return to the need of real societies away from the assumptions of the imaginary and thus interventions have a greater impact in addition to enhancing the role of individuals cohesion and social impact.
The proposal writing program aims at empowering the emerging institutions and teams to formulate the ideas of the initiatives and projects they wish to carry out according to their theories of change and according to the tools they possess, so that they are active individuals and entities that are updated to understand their reality, context and analysis, then write proposals in a professional manner to present them to donors to gain needed funding to launch their projects.
