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
