PM4NGOs support to unemployed (and furloughed) workers and students

COVID-19, Project DPro Certification

Many professionals are struggling with a reduction of their income, temporarily or permanently as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Students also wonder how they will be able to find an internships or jobs in a world of reduced opportunities and social/work contact.

As part of PM4NGOs Covid-19 response, we will be offering unemployed (and furloughed) workers reduced exam fees during the month of June for the Project DPro exam. Unemployed workers will pay USD 22 for their exams and USD 5 for the online invigilation, regardless of their country.

Students already pay USD 22 for exams, however during the month of June,PM4NGOs will waive the USD 5 invigilation fee for students wishing to take the certification exam 

This reduced fee and invigilation waiver is applicable for individual candidates who are able to provide an evidence of their status as a student or as a temporarily or permanently unemployment.

Project DPro and Program DPro guides remain free of costs to download at the PM4NGOs website.

Schedule and Time Management Post-Covid-19

A Post-COVID-19 World and Alternative Development with Project DPro

COVID-19, Development Sector, Project DPro, Project DPro

When we finally emerge from the current health crisis, it will be to a World indelibly marked by the events of 2020. 

The extent of human and economic loss exacted by coronavirus is not yet clear. What we do know is that life will go on and dedicated professionals will continue their work in the humanitarian sectors. But even before current events unfolded, calls for radical change were becoming ever louder as irreversible climate change becomes more imminent. 

I expect this trend to be magnified by the Covid-19 crisis. More people will consider alternatives to mainstream development that focus on culture and wellbeing rather than production based on economic growth. Concepts such as Buen Vivir, Ubuntu, and Degrowth may well become more popular.       

What does this mean for the Project DPro practitioner? Alternative development projects are people-centered and participatory, working on social and cultural issues at grassroots level. Inevitably then, for alternative development projects local knowledge and needs analysis will be more in-depth and complex.
