Ministry of the Kingdom of the Netherlands: Inviting Proposals for Human Rights Fund

Deadline: 30 September 2018

Does your organization work to promote human rights in Myanmar and do you strive to strengthen civil society? Then the Kingdom of the Netherlands is looking to support you!

The Ministry of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has launched a second Call for Proposals for the Human Rights Fund.

The Human Rights Fund’s objectives are to identify strategic priorities for Human Rights engagement, find suitable local and international partners for this work, and set up projects with these partners based on the identified thematic priorities.

Priority Areas

In 2018-2019 the Embassy continues to focus implementation of the Fund on the following priority areas:

  • freedom of expression (including press freedom and HR defenders);
  • freedom of religion and belief;
  • rights of minority groups (including rights of the LGBTI community and marginalized people);
  • the area of business and human rights. Statelessness, hate speech, and gender will be cross-cutting themes.

Budget Information

The total budget for this second round is € 650,000.

Focus and Criteria

  • Local and international NGOs are eligible to apply. Ensuring local ownership and legitimacy is important.
  • The proposed activities must aim at promoting human rights and strengthening civil society in Myanmar.
  • See the above-mentioned four priority areas.
  • Strategic approach: in the interest of complementarity, the activities should align with other activities carried out by the Embassy and other donors as much as possible. Priority should be given to multi-year financing, in order to avoid fragmentation.
  • There is no minimum amount that can be awarded for an individual activity, yet considering the total amount per annum the maximum amount is set at € 100,000.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted via email at the address given on the website.
