Currently, four donors (BHA, ECHO, CDCS, and NHF) and sometimes simultaneous deadlines to comply with, requiring anticipation and organization, and sang-froid; - With its plan to expand its operations outside its historic intervention area of Borno State, such as the North-West, where needs are increasing. This means a need to investigate further and dig into new areas where to intervene and new/potential donors to work with, keeping in mind that donors have specific rules, requirements, and templates, which sometimes need time to be explored - In the context of multiple deadlines and expansion strategy, communication will more than ever be key with the team to ensure everyone has the same level of information on projects, activities, and donor requirements.
