inclusive social development (health and education) and natural resources management (water and sanitation), or
should be complementary to activities of the Czech Development Cooperation.

Who is eligible?
Deadline Free Grants
Only subjects that can demonstrate their independent legal status in Cambodia can submit SSP proposal(s):
Non-political and non-governmental organizations only;
Implementer of the SSP is a local subject with legal status in the country of the project implementation;
Implementer must be eligible to sign contract with MFA CZ; thus the contract would fall under jurisdiction of Czech law and Czech courts.
The majority of SSP funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for a contribution provided that they are working with local partners and on local projects. Similarly educational, health, social or cultural institutions may receive SSP funding provided that their projects are essentially local in nature.
