Is your final report due but you need more time?



Extension request[edit]

New end date[edit]

We'd like to file our final report by November 30th 2017 (instead of August 31st as currently scheduled).

Rationale[edit]

Whose Knowledge? is learning that we often have to extend our timelines, particularly as we partner with and center the needs of marginalized communities in this work. The bulk of the project funds are already spent and most work that will be done for this grant has been largely completed (with both successes and failures along the way). But more time is needed to gather the last sets of work products and feedback and reflections from and with our partner communities. In order to produce an engaging final product at a sane pace for both Okvir (who has multiple projects scheduled right now), and Whose Knowledge? (who has a lot of travel scheduled in September/October), we're requesting an extension to hand in our final report in November instead. Thanks for considering this request!
