1) Objective 

The UsitawiNetwork, the International Service Club for Sustainable Development, aims to make a contribution to the development and implementation of socially and environmentally sustainable forms of economic activity, through its members and organisation. It therefore ultimately aims to help create a balance between economic activity, social development, and ecology. The UsitawiNetwork pursues this purpose by establishing a network of interested individuals as well as by realising and supporting projects in the field of sustainable development.

The network supports projects that (1) promote, spread and put into ef­fect the idea of sus­tain­able man­age­ment, (2) en­cour­age eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment, (3) im­prove the sit­u­a­tion of the bios­phere, and (4) pro­mote the eco­nom­i­cal use of re­sources.

2) Eligibility

Non-profit organisations are eligible to apply (they often support local organisations).

3) Location 

Projects for funding can be launched worldwide. They currently fund projects in Indonesia, India, Mali, Togo, Tanzania, Nepal, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Kenya, and Moldova, among others.

4) Budget 

The network prefers to fund small and medium-sizes projects with a project budget below €73,000 (CHF 80,000) and their financial contribution usually ranges between €2,700-€9,000 (CHF 3,000-CHF 10,000).

5) Application 

Applications can be sent throughout the year (until end of January for Board meeting in spring; until end of July for Board meeting in autumn) to projekte.zytglogge(a)usitawi.org. Applications should be sent to the network either via email or post .
