Your nongovernmental or nonprofit organization (NGO or NPO, respectively) may be a one-person local grassroots operation or an international aid agency. No matter the staff and scale, there are common problems: money issues, accountability, and lots of reports and paperwork.

You rely on volunteers, staff put up with low wages, so many things are in constant flux. You have deadlines and dozens of pressures, but you should never overlook the importance of your words. Words are the central proof that let you continue your fine work.
If you can draft up your reports, grant proposals, manuals, and other written word, we can edit for you affordably, and happily. We love NGOs and NPOs.

For example, applying for grants is hard work. There is a grant available for almost every NGO and NPO in the world. But getting the grant approved requires efficient and effective communication of your needs and value to potential funders.

Who will give you money if you can’t explain what you do?

You must clearly describe the need for the proposed project, how it can make a difference in the community, and why your organization is the best fit for the work.

There are also project implementation reports, project documentation, letters of inquiry, internal memos, and don’t forget training manuals. Writing for NGOs is varied and unique, and it never ends.

Just like a for-profit business, you are communicating a story and a mission. But NGOs and NPOs have an added mission, as they typically help marginalized people. Your work is your passion and your reason you wake up in the morning. We love this.

Our writing assistance, editing, and proofreading establish and maintain your reputation as a stable and trustworthy organization.

We’re not just saying this, we’ve lived it.

We will greatly increase your credibility and level of achievement by putting your English into just the right form. You can then even more effectively achieve your mission.


Name:Pedro Gomes (38)
Position:Executive Director
Company:SUCCEED Network
Industry:Nonprofit – NGO, NPO
Background:Pedro is one of the youngest NGO leaders in East Timor. After the war, he was one of the few who volunteered his services to the initial wave of international NGOs who came in to provide relief and disaster assistance. He rose to a senior position when the international NGOs left, and now he is faced with funding shortages. English is not his first language, but he still has to write a funding proposal in professional business-level English. He is worried that he will not be able to find the right words to communicate his organization’s mission and story. He understands the requirements and can put down the basics, but he knows it’s full of errors. He wants the language to be correct and professional. Without continued funding, the organization will have to downsize its work and staff even more.

Adam had never worked with my company’s products, but he immediately studied them and became like an expert. He always suggests much better sentences for my business needs, along with good advice and explanation, instead of just proofreading. For ESL learners, this is very helpful, and for my business it’s fantastic. He is also very diligent and caring. Even during off hours he returns my urgent requests quickly, and perfectly done.
