Proposal Writing [Specimen]
Objective .. To eliminate the problem of stench emanating from the corporation drain that passes adjoining our school’s boundary wall.
Why it is important… Our school’s air remains mildly polluted all the time causing a serious health hazard. Our school’s canteen also lies in the vicinity of our boundary wall. The stench in an eating place is a repulsive idea. Apart from that the swimming pool built as per international standards virtually abuts the boundary wall, and is affected by the stench all the time.
Why the problem persists .. The corporation says it has no money to provide concrete slabs to cover the drain. The shops on the other side of the road are affected, as the stench repels their customers, but they wait for the corporation to do the job, which is not going to happen any time soon.
What is the way out and how our school can facilitate the work .. We in Class X had some very preliminary discussion with some of the shop owners. They say the work of putting concrete slabs on the drain might cost Rs.2.5 crores. They are ready to mobile funds to the tune of Rs.1 crore. The rest is to be arranged.
What we can do in this regard without straining our slender reserves… Our swimming pool is one of the best in Asia, and is ideal for training budding swimmers. In the dame way, our Physics laboratory and Computer Lab are superb. Many schools in the town envy our facilities. There are some 10 private and 12 government schools, who are keen to have such facilities, but lack the resources. We can allow them to use our facilities three days a week, so that our access to the facilities are not hampered. The annual fee can be Rs.5 lakh for the swimming pool, and Rs. 2 lakh for each of the two labs. We can thus collect Rs.9 lakh per year. We can approach Premzi Foundation and CISCO, India to donate Rs.10 lakh each from their CSR budgets. After accumulating a total of Rs.1.3 crore like this, we can prevail upon the Corporation to allocate the rest amount from their funds. They will be morally obliged to accede to our plea.
Our proposal. Let a steering committee be formed with two senior teachers and five students to take the project forwards, and work out the nitty-gritty of the facilities –leasing arrangement.
Conclusion .. If this project comes to fruition, it would be a giant step for a small school like ours in the field of finding collaborative solutions to social issues.
We respectfully invite the opinions of teachers and students abut the suitability of this specimen proposal.
