The Japanese Government offers a financial assistance scheme for small-scaled development projects designed to meet the diverse needs of developing countries. Known as Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots Human Security Projects (GGP), this scheme aims to support projects which address the issues of basic human needs to benefit the people at the grass-roots level. As long as the development project is geared to grassroots assistance, it is eligible to be financed under the GGP.
