VISION STATEMENT - What do you want to see in-place for your organization and grassroots work in the next 5 years?
A vision is a descriptive statement about the desired the state of your organization and its work at a future point in time. What do you want to become? What do you want to be doing? A vision is not concerned with the how or why but is more focused on the what. Be descriptive, be bold, be inspiring but also be practical. A vision that isn't realistic makes it hard to motivate people to support.
STATEMENT OF THE OBSTACLES - What is in the way or blocking you from moving towards you vision?
Obstacles are not abstract like "money" but rather they are concrete barriers to moving forward such as poor grant-writing skills and under-utilization of volunteer energy. These should not be "prescriptive" but rather descriptive - help us understand your challenges.
STRATEGIC DIRECTIONS - What strategies are you going to adopt to overcome the obstacles and move towards your vision.
Strategies should not be confused with "tactics" which are specific actions. For example, a workshop on land reform is a tactic that is part of a larger strategy of community outreach.
