    Is it correct to use a verb “foresee” in this sentence?

    Is it correct to use a verb “foresee” in this sentence or is it better to rephrase it:
    The project also foresees providing support to agricultural small holders. (meaning that this is one of the project objectives).

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Yes, you could use that. You could also use "anticipates", or you could rephrase it simply to say "The project will also provide support to..."
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Are you proposing that the project will actually provide this support? Then you should probably state that and not "foresee" anything.

    I don't know if you should personify "project" in a formal proposal.

    The project will actually provide if it receives the funding
