Deadline: 31 January 2018
The Embassy of Japan in Uganda is seeking concept papers for its Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGP) to provide financial assistance to non-profit, development-oriented organizations to support community development projects which directly benefit people at the grassroots level.
Any projects geared towards grassroots assistance are eligible for financing under GGP. Preferable, however, are projects in the areas below. Particular attention will also be given to projects designed to assist the most vulnerable groups such as women, children and the physically disabled.
- Primary/secondary education
- Vocational training
- Primary health care, reproductive health and HIV/AIDS
- Water and sanitation
- Reconstruction for disaster areas
- Agricultural development
The grant amount per project is generally under 10 million yen (Approximately US$100,000 depending on exchange rates).
- Any non-profit organization, which has been registered with the National Board of NGOs or local governments, and has a minimum of two years experience in implementing development projects at a grassroots level, and which has full-time paid staff and track record in handling at least 50 % of the requested fund, is eligible to apply for GGP.
- Potential recipients are international or local NGOs, community based organizations, medical institutions, educational institutions and local authorities/governments. In particular cases such as IDP or refugee camps where assistance activities are limited, international organizations may also become recipients.
