How to include standardization in an R&I project or proposal
or not to standardize
There is no one right way to include standardization in your R&I project or proposal.
It all depends on what your project needs and what you want to achieve.
What is your R&I need?
How will my contribution benefit the orphans?
Your contribution will not only benefit the orphan’s well being, food, clothing, shelter and education (school kits) but beyond that, it will help build a brighter future for the orphans.
Can I sponsor more than 1 orphan?
Yes you can. Theres no limit
How long does my sponsorship last? Am I allowed to cancel my sponsorship?
Your sponsorship lasts as long as you want it to. Although it is our aim to establish a long-term relationship with the sponsored child so as to ensure his continued education. You can cancel at any time by giving us at least one month notice - to find a replacement sponsor.
I am unable to commit for a year. Can I make a one-time donation?
Yes, you may make a One-Time contribution of $80. However, One-Time sponsors will not receive any Orphan’s profile.
How can I make occasional extra donations? (Such as a birthday gift or contribution to further learning)
All extra donations are welcome. To make a donation, simply email email@example.com.
How much is it to sponsor a child?
It costs $80 a month to sponsor a child with Global Ehsan Relief. Your monthly contribution goes to providing a child with a safe and nurturing home, quality education, healthcare, nutritious food, clothing and all things necessary for a bright future.

What is a child sponsorship?
A child sponsorship is an earmarked financial contribution made regularly by an individual donor or an organization/company as a means of supporting orphaned children on a long-term basis.
Can I visit the child I’m sponsoring?
You’re welcome to visit your sponsored child. To do so, please contact our Orphan Officer at email@example.com about a month before you go, to arrange a mutually convenient date and time.
Can I send gifts to my sponsored child?
Where are the children from?
Am I allowed to choose which orphan I would like to sponsor?
To ensure that all of our orphans have a fair chance of being sponsored, sponsors are not allowed to choose their sponsored orphans. This is to avoid any biases due to their gender, nationality or country of birth.
Will I know who I will be sponsoring for?
Yes, upon registration all orphans’ sponsors will receive a Welcome Pack within 2 weeks containing 1) Welcome Letter, 2) Orphan’s Profile - containing a picture and description of the sponsored child. In addition, we will send you general information about the country of where your sponsored child lives.
What does an Orphan’s profile entail?
Identify existing standards and information on ongoing standardization initiatives and relevant Technical Committees which are relevant to the project.
This provides an overview of the state of the art and existing practices, especially in industrial environment, allows apply existing knowledge to the project activities and identify standardization gaps to be revealed.
All R&I projects can profit from this kind of information.
Most information is available in search engines on the webpages of the different standardization organizations or through specific applications (e.g. Perinorm).
Identify, analyze, discuss and elaborate a structured plan for future standardization development in a sector or topic.
This can raise awareness about standardization needs and opportunities discovered in the project, build up networks or link with other projects and approaches.
The project can organize events for meeting stakeholders and discussing needs, lead a CEN-CENELEC STAIR Platform or elaborate a standardization roadmap.
Influence ongoing standardization
Join ongoing standardization work relevant for the project, to integrate some of the results in them, either for new standards or for the modification of existing ones.
This allows to gain visibility, applicability and long-term impact of the project results, using the momentum of existing works instead of starting new ones.
The project can contact the relevant Technical Committees and provide some informed suggestions, recommendations or proposals, join the TC works by participating as an expert through the relevant National Standardization Body or ask for a Project Liaison.
Proposal and elaboration of existing standards
Directly engage standardization organizations to lead the elaboration of new standards which support the project results.
This increases long-term impact of the project and sets the basis for future innovation, especially where different sectors and stakeholders can benefit from it.
The project can propose the creation of a CEN-CENELEC Workshop to develop a CWA or propose the elaboration of a TS or TR in a Technical Committee.
A specific partner can be recruited for taking care of the above standardization activities in the projects.
This complements the consortium with expertise and knowledge about standardization procedures, provide visibility and reliability to the standardization activities included in the project.
The best suited stakeholder to perform this kind of activities is a National Standards Body, member of the European and international organization, which can guide through all activities explained above and support decision making. They also perform the secretariat roles in new standardization proposals.
