1) Objective

The German Embassy in Dakar finances several small-scale projects every year to improve the living-conditions in the rural and urban areas in The Gambia. These microprojects are supposed to provide a punctual aid responding to the basic needs of the poorest population. By the means of a micro-project the Embassy can for example provide real assets or contribute to the construction of a building or infrastructure. The municipalities or associations requesting financial-aid have to be able to provide a selfcontribution to their projects. This contribution can consist for instance in providing manpower, building materials, transportation or water supply, depending on the project’s nature. The Embassy wants to point out that all applicants also have to provide a financial self-contribution and that salaries within the demanding organisation will not be paid by the Embassy.

Some examples: (1) drilling of a small well for village community / installation of an irrigation system for a vegetable garden of a women’s association / fencing of a vegetable garden; (2) provision of a milling machine, a water pump, a copying machine etc.; (3) acquisition of gardening materials, tables and benches for schools, etc.

2) Eligibility

Eligible are local organisations.

3) Location

Actions must take place in The Gambia.

4) Budget

The funding amount varies from approx. €7,000-€10,000.

5) Application

Please hand in your application at the ambassador’s office in Kerr Serign Njaga (Kerr Serign Njaga – Coastal Road/Senegambia Highway, P.O. Box 833, Banjul/The Gambia). Due to the high number of projects presented, the Embassy asks for your understanding that a personal interview is not always possible. Should the Embassy require further information it will directly contact the spokesman of the project. After studying the presented projects a committee will decide which projects will be supported.
