The Embassy of Japan in Botswana is inviting interested non-profit organizations for Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGP) to support people-centred relatively small development projects which have a direct and immediate impact on the well-being of disadvantaged communities at grass-roots level.
GGP/KUSANONE aims to assist self-help efforts of NPO’s in:
social and economic development in rural/urban settings,
supporting people/communities who are socially and/or economically vulnerable and disadvantaged,
empowering local communities for sustainable development, etc.
GGP/KUSANONE aims to meet various needs whose areas include but are not limited to: education, health/sanitation, support for people with disabilities, water/energy, agriculture/indigenous industry, and environment.
10,000,000 Japanese Yen (approximately 1,000,000 BWP, this is dependent on the currency exchange rate) is the maximum amount allocated per project under the GGP/KUSANONE.
The GGP/KUSANONE is implemented in one-year cycles as the programme’s budget is allocated annually. Furthermore, the approved project must be completed within one year of the date of the grant contract.
