The Embassy of the United States in Port Louis has the pleasure to invite proposals from non-governmental organizations, schools, community groups, health and environmental associations and others for the Ambassador’s Special Self Help Program in Mauritius and Seychelles. The U.S. Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Program is a grassroots assistance program that responds to requests for financial assistance from small community-based projects that are initiated and administered at the local level.
Every project is expected to: (1) improve basic economic or social conditions at the local community or village level; (2) support high-impact, quick-implementation activities that benefit a large number of people, without requiring further SSH assistance; (3) involve a significant local contribution in cash, labor, and/or materials, and be within the ability of the local community to operate and maintain on a sustainable basis; (4) not initiate, continue, or supplement technical assistance programs; and (5) contribute, whenever possible, to income-generating or self-sustaining activities.
Community based organisations are eligible to apply for this funding opportunity.
Actions must take place in Mauritius.
Project funding varies depending on the type of organisation and need of the project but grants are usually small (around $10,000). The project expected not to exceed twelve months.
This year’s deadline is 9 September 2021.
