encompass entire sets of processes such as accounting, project initiation, completion

required to follow these procedures.
Crescent executes its projects, either through employees,volunteers or partner organizations
to safeguard Crescent’s interests. Project funding is not released until a project
proposal is submitted and approved by Crescent Foundation, and an agreement is signed.
The agreement clearly states the purpose of the project and expected results, and
requires submission of a project completion report, photographs, and receipts upon
In the case of a long-term on-going project, interim reports are submitted at regular
intervals in order to monitor ongoing performance and to decide on further funding.

receive support for the designated project at hand.

in which they fill applications to qualify individuals for support. This may include
visiting the applicants’ localities, enquiring about them from neighbors and local
shop keepers etc.
