With only $25, you make it possible for one professional in the development or humanitarian sectors, in any part of the world, to take an online exam and pursue the Project DPro (PMD Pro) certification. Every $225 we reach through this campaign will include an online training course for the candidate to prepare for the exam.
When we reach this campaign $5,625 goal, 25 project managers in developing countries will receive:
- Access to dynamic, online, social learning training
- Project DPro (PMD Pro) certification exam
- Invigilation and support for taking the certification exam
A lifetime access to a professional development platform (PMD Pro+) is granted to those who successfully pass the exam, helping them to continuing improve their skills, access tools and project management resources, and interact with other certified professionals around the world..
The Project DPro (PMD Pro) – Project Management for Development Professionals – is a body of knowledge and certification developed by the sector, for the sector and owned by the sector, that provides project managers the skills needed to deliver effective, transparent results to donors and communities.
Over the last 10 years we are proud that the Project DPro has reached over 30,000 development and humanitarian sector professionals around the world. The fact remains that there are hundreds of thousands more. Many of them work for small, local organizations in their own communities. Many of them are volunteers. All of whom could benefit from learning more about project management to better serve their communities. For example, a community women’s group working in a slum may be able to improve their service delivery through the logical framework and risk analysis. A farmers’ cooperative may benefit from better understanding stakeholders and understanding how to measure the progress of their initiatives.
We want to reach as many people, teams, and organizations as possible to help them reap the benefits of improved project management practices. We have developed learning materials and provided the Project DPro Guide free of charge, but many local professionals would also like the opportunity to take the Project DPro certification exam.
This is where YOU can help, where YOU can make a difference for a blossoming project manager in the developing world. PM4NGOs is raising funds to provide scholarships for team members from local organizations to take the certification exam. In the current context, in which there is restricted travel and movement as a result of the pandemic, we will rely more and more on local organizations and need to ensure they have the skills and tools they need to succeed.
