Who we are
We created Sprout Projects as a result of our personal experience in international development.
We witnessed first-hand the struggle of hard-working civil society organisations unable to access adequate or large-scale funding; due to a lack of capacity to 'speak the same language' or 'tick the boxes' of big funding organisations or donors.
We specialise in helping micro, small and medium-sized cause-driven organisations with big dreams get the funding they need to reach their potential. We are a group of professional consultants with diverse skill sets including program design, donor relations, grant-writing, fundraising, project development, communications, finance, administration and data analysis. Our consultants work together from different time zones and have diverse backgrounds, but we share a common vision.

Where work has taken us
We are a value-based at our core and we believe that our work is part of the
collective effort for social good in the world.
We support projects that are committed to ending injustices in the world and contributing towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
We consider Sprout Project to be a cause-driven organisation (although we aren't a not-for-profit)-building sustainable cause-driven organisations is our cause.
