Details about projects
Choose a title that describes the project in a few words and ideally mention the location (country, region).
Choose a picture or logo that represents the activity you wish to achieve in your project.
We encourage you to put a brief description of what the project is trying to accomplish. We reserve the right to adjust this description to be shorter so that it works in our listing, however, we prefer you to create the description and work with you on making more descriptive with fewer words.
About Project (long description)
The about tab will become available after you have saved the project. You can click on Edit About and create a more complete description of the project. This is where you should get into detail about the project goals and methods. Anyone who clicks on your project link will see this description.

The photo tab allows you to up-load photos for your project. You can also use this for documents like receipts that are scanned into image files.
When you wish to have transparency in you project, one way is to up-load files such as scans of your agreements with other organizations and individuals.
You can invite others to your group, either by entering their name as registered in the Partner System, or by entering their e-mail address. In either case, a link will go out to the individual inviting them to join your group. In order to do so, they will first have to create a login to the system.
