The Japanese Government offers small scale grants for development projects in order to meet the diverse needs of the vulnerable communities and people. “Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP)” supports projects proposed by various organizations such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and municipalities. The goal of GGP is to improve the livelihood of socially and economically vulnerable people. The Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Program (GGP) was established to assist NGOs and local public authorities to implement small-scale projects directly benefiting the people at grassroots level as well as contributing to the socio-economic development.
The GGP mainly targets areas that aim to improve Basic Human Needs (BHN) such as projects that are highly beneficial at the grass-roots level and those that require timely support on humanitarian grounds. Typical projects include construction of primary and junior high schools, improvement of fundamental medical equipment for hospitals, excavation of wells, vocational training and seminars concerning poverty alleviation.
The GGP targets nonprofit organisations that implement development projects at grass-roots level in eligible countries and regions. These include: international and local non governmental organisations (NGOs) working in developing countries, local public authorities, educational institutions such as primary and junior high schools, hospitals and medical institutions.
Actions must take place in East-Timor.
The maximum grant amount per project is 10,000,000 Yen (approx. $90,000).
If your organisation satisfies the conditions described above and you want to receive GGP grant assistance to implement a development project, you should submit an application form to the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in East-Timor. There are two deadline a year (30 June and 31 August) but applications can be submitted on an ongoing basis.
