The LCF is one of the Finnish development cooperation instruments and aims at supporting the civil society to participate in the development process of Egypt. The LCF has been operating in the Embassy since 2003. The LCF seeks to support projects that put in place support structures or undertake interventions to support the vulnerable groups that are mentioned in the focal areas. The focus areas of LCF support are: (1) projects supporting the participation of women in the economy and work force through facilitating the access of women graduates to employment; (2) Capacity building and skills development for women with lower levels of education.
The LCF is available for Egyptian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other local non-profit civil society actors, such as: science and technology communities, universities and other educational and research institutions, independent media, public bodies and cultural institutions (for example, museums, libraries and theatres), chambers of commerce and commercial associations, organisations engaged in the promotion of export and investment, businesses, cooperatives, interest groups of companies and employees, foundations or religious communities.
Actions must take place in Egypt.
LCF range of funding varies from €50,000 up to €80,000 though there is flexibility to fund slightly smaller and larger projects.
All documents should be sent by e-mail to lcfund.KAI(a)formin.fi. Deadline for submitting applications is 30 September 2019 at midnight.
