Embassy of Japan in Namibia: Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects

Deadline: 13 April 2018

The Embassy of Japan in Namibia is seeking applications for its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) with an aim to bring a direct and immediate impact on the well-being of disadvantaged communities at a grass-roots level by supporting relatively small development projects to be implemented by Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs).

The Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) was first introduced as the Small Scale Grant Assistance Program in 1989, and in Namibia, the program has been run since 1997.

Funding Information

The standard limit is NAD 900,000.00. The amount is subject to change due to the inevitable fluctuation of the exchange rates.

Project Areas

The GGP mainly covers tangible improvement, such as constructing primary and junior high schools, improving fundamental medical equipment at hospitals, and excavating wells, etc.

Eligible Applicants

  • Registered NPOs (NPOs here include non-governmental organisations, community-based organisations, education institutions, medical institutions and local governments.)
  • The site of a proposed project must be located within Namibia.
  • The applicant organisation must have at least 3 (three) years’ experiences in the sector of the proposed project.
  • The applicant organisation is required to have established and stable foundations in terms of finance, human resources, project management etc. Therefore, newly established organisations, pilot projects, initial start-up costs etc. won’t be supported by GGP.
  • Only one (1) application will be considered per organisation.
  • Individuals or private companies are not eligible to apply
