Role: Grant Writing
About Field Ready
Today’s humanitarian supply chains are cumbersome, expensive and often fail to deliver results. Field Ready trains local people to solve their own problems and work with groups to ultimately transform the way aid is delivered, and has proven the concept using local manufacturing of supplies in a range of countries and contexts. Field Ready achieves scalable impact by pioneering new techniques, demonstrating that local production of humanitarian items is possible, and delivers appropriate supplies more quickly and more cheaply than the alternatives.
