Applications are invited for Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots Human Security Projects (GGP). The programme offers financial assistance for developmental projects designed to meet the diverse needs of developing countries.
This scheme supports projects proposed by local non-profit organisations; primarily non-governmental organisations (NGOs), whose projects are aimed at benefiting communities at the grass roots level.
The GGP mainly targets projects which are aimed at meeting basic human needs, and those that are highly beneficial at the grass-roots level, which require timely support.
Project areas that will be considered for the grant include but are not limited to: poverty alleviation; public welfare; primary health care, education, and environmental protection and disaster risk reduction and management (these may include climate change adaptation and migration, agriculture, the 3Rs (reduce, re-use and recycle) and Waste Management). Projects must be completed within one year.
Eligible recipients for the Japanese grant include local and international non-governmental organisations, schools or educational institutes, hospitals or medical institutions and local offices of international organisations. The latter two are included if they are the only entities that would be able to successfully carry out the project.
The completed application form with a budget plan and other required documents should be submitted by email to Kelly Hunte at firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, February 16.
