Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGP) Programme

Deadline: 26-Feb-21 The Embassy of Japan in South Africa has launched the Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGP) Programme to assist Non-Profit Organisations (NPO’s) and local authorities by supporting relatively small development projects which have a direct and immediate impact on the well-being of disadvantaged communities at the grass-roots level. (Ad) What tools do you need to raise funds for your organization? A grants database, a donor search option, sample proposals, a library of guidebooks on how to raise funds, a grants map, a deadline calendar, training from fundraising experts and an alert system to give you timely information about new opportunities. We have all of these in our Premium Membership service – now available at 50% discount. $49.99 per year only. Click here! The GGP targets areas that aim to improve Basic Human Needs (BHN) such as projects that are highly beneficial to disadvantaged and/or vulnerable people or groups. The following areas are NOT financed by the GGP: Projects that have uncertain benefits for grassroots activities such as assistance for research by advanced academic institutions and capacity building of the recipient organization. Projects limited to commercial activities and creation of employment of particular individuals and organizations, and which have uncertain direct benefits for grass-roots activities. Culture, art, and sport projects that are less related to economic and social development. Projects with a political or missionary purpose, or the intention of military use. Consumables, small fixtures, running and maintenance costs of facilities, and equipment are not financed in principle even if the project is eligible for the GGP. The Embassy of Japan in the Republic of South Africa covers the Republic of South Africa, the Kingdom of Lesotho, and the Kingdom of Eswatini, and deals with applications from these three countries. The site of the proposed project must be located in among the three. (Ad) How can I search grant information of my interest?
