  12. 12. urgent need The target beneficiary’s need must be clearly urgent and measurable. A research proposal can be relevant when it focuses on an urgent need or a critical problem situation of the target beneficiary. FIRST SLIDE LAST SLIDE END SHOW PREVIOUS SLIDE LAST VIEWED NEXT SLIDE
  13. 13. Why must it be measurable? Most donors and sponsors need to report how their money or donation is used in terms of • Number of beneficiaries • Length of time • Number of results • Number of needs met • Number of problems solved FIRST SLIDE LAST SLIDE END SHOW PREVIOUS SLIDE LAST VIEWED NEXT SLIDE
  14. 14. Why must it be measurable? Progress is easier to observe when quantities, numbers, and measures can be used. • Not all elements are measurable. • For practice purposes, you are required to think of measurable elements. • This can give you the skill to measure elements that cannot ordinarily be measured. • Such a skill is competitive and marketable.
