MS Training Centre for Development Cooperation: Fundraising and Contract Management

MS Training Centre for Development Cooperation

The MS Training Centre for Development Cooperation (MS-TCDC) is part of the NGO MS, Danish Association for International Cooperation.

The MD-TCDC was opened in 1976 to prepare Danish Volunteers for their assignments in different Eastern and Southern African Countries. The centre still receives these Danish Development Workers sent out by MS, for the four weeks African Orientation Course. But today, the majority of our more than 500 annual participants come for our Swahili and Development courses from regional NGOs and others.

The MS-TCDC is conducting a course on Fundraising and Contract Management from 4-8 June 2012 and 1-5 October 2012 in Arusha, Tanzania.

By the end of the course, participants will have the knowledge and skills to design and describe innovative projects, initiate funding partnerships, raise funds for long term goals, negotiate mutual contract terms, efficiently manage contracts and sustain good donor relations. Ultimately participants will strengthen their resource mobilisation skills.
