Contributions to activities are justified

The project justification is one of the most crucial parts of a proposal. You can use it to convince the potential donor that your project is of ultimate importance for your community and elucidate the ways in which, by developing this project, you will consistently achieve your set goals (social, economic improvement or the resolution to a specific problem).

Project Justification is about trying to explain why we need to implement a particular solution to the problem we have narrated above. We need to tell donors why this is the best solution to address the problem.

Research the issue your project addresses in depth. Identify the causes of the problem and, if possible, list the ways in which other projects have already successfully addressed similar issues. Once you have this material, write in simple words what your project is about and what your main goal is (remember to set achievable and realistic goals for your project!).

For example, if we are proposing a microfinance intervention for poor families so that they can make some savings to educate their children, then we need to justify this part by specifically saying that people are interested in microfinance and they have been some self-help group activity going on in the area. Besides, there are opportunities available for such microfinance activities in the area like for example banks are willing to provide small loans to organized microfinance groups.

Similarly, if we are proposing computer centers to train and generate employment opportunities for youths, then we can justify this intervention by saying that the local government policy is providing support to such an activity in form of some support, maybe infrastructural or subsidy.
