Challenges Facing Projects In Communities For Developmental Purposes (Admission Essay Sample)


A motivation letter where one is seeking a scholarship opportunity.

I recently graduated from Daystar University with BA Community Development and I am interested to apply for a Master’s Program in your Institution. Currently I work with a CBO based in the Rural Kilifi, Kenya. The CBO - CHADI is involved in many programs and projects with the aim of bringing developmental changes to the less fortunate in the community by helping them solve problems that hinder development. As part of my learning experience, I was involved in a reusable sanitary project which aimed at teaching young girls and women on how they can make these reusable towels. Many girls miss school during their menstrual period while women are not able to attend to farm work and other activities. In regard to this, I got interested in applying for a Master’s Program in Project Management in your Institution. I gained slight know-how in Project management when studying my Degree program in Community Development at Daystar University in Kenya.

The knowledge I will acquire from this course, will help me to be outstanding in managing successful projects. At national level I wish to be a consultant, train and deploy technical staff in the development sector as well as make other sectors achieve their goals through proper managerial skills. Therefore I intend to pursue Masters in Project Management so that I become part of the experts to solve my country’s developmental problems, which do not seem to end because of poor managed projects. Apart from my studies, I gained skills from actively involving myself in other activities.
