Grant Writing and Project Management training is aimed at increasing knowledge in a variety of areas that deal with application for grants and proposal writing. This training also provides a basic understanding of what a grant is and why it is important for professionals in the field of health to apply for grants. Learners will become familiar with practices and techniques that should be adopted to overcome the challenge of not being successful when applying for grants.

A range of different approaches have been applied to Grant Writing for the purpose of improving research and increasing chances of receiving grant awards - from developing guidelines, process improvement, feedback to large-scale and collaborative improvement. However, the range of approaches is not well understood among professionals at MTRH.       

As a result, interventions known to lead to the drafting of better proposals are not consistently practiced by grant applicants. Poorly composed proposals mean that chances of being awarded a grant are limited.

This training therefore aims to introduce learners to principles and approaches that can help them to continually improve their skills in Grant Writing. This will be achieved through understanding underlying principles of proposal Writing, and provide an overview of different approaches to improve chances on being awarded. The course will introduce a wide range of methods to improve quality of applications and then focus on process improvement after getting a grant.


By the end of the training, learners should be able to:

  • Explain what is meant by a grant.
  • Explain the specifics of a quality proposal.
  • Discuss key frameworks and principles for improving grant applications.
  • Name some of the sites from which they can apply for grants.


The course providers would like to thank developers of the Power Point slides being used in this training for their valuable work that will enhance the capacity of MTRH staff.

The birth of Eldoret Hospice originated from Sister Rose Abira a nurse who was working at Eldoret District Hospital, now The Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH), in the year 1994. She came across a woman writhing in pain with a diagnosis of cervical cancer stage four having been discharged to go home with no indication of further support from the health care team. It is an Out Patient Facility where patients and their care givers are attended to in their homes to a radius of 70 kilometres.
Mrs. Abira approached the Catholic Diocese of Eldoret and spoke to Fr. Korir now Bishop Korir to seek support towards establishment of a hospice within Eldoret. Bishop Korir introduced her to Fr. Durr who was a guest in the diocese, visiting from Ireland.
She also talked to the Hospitals Management, and she was allowed to set up an out-patient clinic in a small room within the Hospital. Five nurses including Rose were sent to Nairobi Hospice for a five days orientation training, after which palliative care services commenced.
In the meantime, Fr. Durr assisted in raising funds that resulted in securing land and setting up a building that now houses Eldoret Hospice. The facility was handed over to the community in the year 2001. A Board was formed to oversee its running.
It consists of 14 members drawn from various fields in the community and varied professional backgrounds. All Board Members are volunteers who have dedicated their time and services to ensure smooth running of this facility.
It is this facility that began with one patient that has over the years seen over 4000 patients with cancer, HIV, renal, kidney failure and other life limiting illnesses since its inception.
The Eldoret Hospice currently has a dedicated team of 3 nurses, 1 occupational therapist, (seconded from the County Government) 1 medical doctor, 1 administrator, 1 social worker and a housekeeping staff (seconded from Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital) and the Hospice has employed 4 staff. 1 driver, 1 housekeeper, a secretary and a grounds man.

Why Support Eldoret Hospice
•    It is a known fact that Eldoret Hospice is a Charitable Non Profit Making Organization. Many people come expecting free services yet it does not have adequate income.
•    Majority of the patients seek our services or are referred to us when they are already financially drained and without money, having gone through many diagnosis and treatment.
•    Patients who cannot afford curative care are always referred to the Hospice for pain management other distressing symptoms.
•    Drugs used for cancer pain management are not readily available over the counter and are also not affordable to many.
•    Our major activity is Home Based Care. This requires facilitation through availability of a good vehicle, fuel, supply of drugs and personnel.
•    Patients who decline to undergo surgery are always referred to Hospice for Palliative Care and Pain Management.
•    Eldoret Hospice depends on support from its members and well-wishers, and the finances raised are not adequate due to increased number of patients and services.
•    We are overstretched and overwhelmed by the number of patients referred to us since we are known as a Charitable Non Profit Making facility in Eldoret.
