1)  Objective

The GGP is one of the grant schemes of the Embassy of Japan in Georgia, oriented towards providing support to the grassroots actors, for the promotion of Basic Human Needs and Human Security in Georgia. This involves, but is not limited to the actions, which aim to mitigate threats to human survival, human life, human dignity, as well as the actions aimed to build up the capacities of individuals and communities.

Within 22 years of its work in Georgia – from 1998 to 2022, the Grassroots Human Security Program (GGP) of the Government of Japan funded more than 200 projects, in total amounting to more than 20 million USD. Through this funding, agriculture infrastructure was developed, alleviating poverty in some of the poorest villages; thousands of hectares of land were cleared from hazardous landmines, saving lives of local population; dozens of schools, kindergartens, hospitals were rehabilitated and re-equipped, providing essential services to the most vulnerable population. Those are only a few of the examples and the range of sectors funded has been very broad.

Representing the goodwill of the ordinary Japanese people, the Embassy of Japan strives to provide support in the sectors, considered most essential by the population of Georgia itself. Vast majority of the reputable local and international research reflects that the population of Georgia considers socio-economic problems as the most acute national issues, along with the occupation of its territories. Thus, in its GGP program, the Embassy strives to emphasize the projects, which aim to resolve those problems most effectively and efficiently.
