Comic Relief: Preventing Child Trafficking & Exploitation in Nepal

Deadline: 21 July 2017

Comic Relief is seeking applications for its initiative entitled “Preventing Child Trafficking & Exploitation in Nepal” to support work to prevent the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children and young people, alongside supporting appropriate services that enable them to exit safely and effectively recover from the negative impacts.

Comic Relief would also like to focus on the systemic level changes that need to take place in order to reduce and eventually eliminate the sexual exploitation of children in Nepal.

Funding Information

There is no minimum funding request and we will welcome requests up to £250,000. In total, we have up to £1 million available for this initiative.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The main project activities should take place in Nepal; however, Comic Relief may also consider applications that address cross-border trafficking from Nepal into India.
  • Applicants must demonstrate successful experience of working on child rights and protection, particularly in relation to trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children and young people in Nepal.
  • Applicants may be Nepal registered organisations or UK registered organisations working in partnership with implementing Nepali organisations who are leading the delivery of the work. Where the applicant is a UK registered organisation or has a non-operational or no-implementing office in Nepal, a strong case must be made of the added value the organisation will bring to the partnership and demonstrate how the Nepali partner(s) have led the project design and development and how they will lead the project implementation.
  • There is no minimum funding request and we will welcome requests up to £250,000. Grant proposals should be for a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 36 months.
  • For this initiative, Comic Relief can only accept organisations appearing in one application for funding, whether the organisation is the lead applicant or a partner to the lead applicant.
  • There is no minimum/maximum annual turnover for applicant or partner organisations. However, organisations with a relatively small annual turnover should ensure that their funding request is commensurate with their annual turnover.
