Embassy of Japan in Thailand is seeking applications for Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) scheme to provide support to non-profit organizations that are engaged in the social development sector in Thailand.

The GGP scheme provides flexible and quick support to comparatively small-scale development projects which aim to improve the social well-being of people at the grassroots level.

The Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects scheme (GGP), one of the ODA schemes, is intended to promote socio-economic development at the grassroots level as well as to maintain Human Security by directly supporting existing projects implemented by non-profit organizations such as Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and medical/ educational institutions. GGP provides the projects with effective means to help them achieve their own goals more efficiently and effectively

Eligible Areas

GGP mainly targets areas that aim to improve Basic Human Needs (BHN) such as projects that are highly beneficial at the grass-roots level and those that require timely support on humanitarian grounds. Typical projects include improvement of the basic education facilities, improvement of fundamental medical equipment for hospitals. CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) or BOP (Base of the Pyramid) projects in collaboration with Japanese companies can be supported by GGP.

Target Group

The target group of the projects should be “socially vulnerable people” whose situation would worsen without the project.

Funding Information

In principle, 10 million yen per project. However, depending on the content of the project (for example, a project strongly reflecting human security), a maximum of 100 million yen may be available.

Duration

Within one year from the day when a grant contract is signed.
