The project budget will be determined based on detailed cost estimates, including mobile application development, infrastructure setup, partner collaborations, marketing and promotion, and ongoing operational expenses. We will seek funding from various sources, including grants, corporate partnerships, and impact investors, with a target budget of [insert budget amount].
We will conduct regular monitoring and evaluation to measure the project’s impact and effectiveness in achieving its objectives.
