- The bidding round for prospective projects for the financial year 2019-20 is now open. The British High Commission is pleased to invite NGO’s/Civil Society, think-tanks, private sector, academic institutions, research bodies and development partners to submit small project proposals for this funding stream. They are looking for innovative and creative interventions that will make a difference.
- Projects will need to demonstrate clear measureable outcomes, and should contribute to bringing about change at a policy level in order to maximise the impact that a small amount of funding can deliver. Co-funded projects are particularly welcomed. Proposals should be strategically aligned with at least one of the following categories:
- Strengthened democracy with effective, accountable and responsive governance and an empowered civil society;
- Protection and promotion of human rights including the most marginalized sections of the society;
- Support to secure international agreements on human trafficking or to increase Bangladesh’s resilience and capacity to respond to human trafficking issues; freedom of religion or belief;
- Promote freedom of expression and freedom of media. Share knowledge and raise awareness of rights under current laws. Undertake advocacy with government authorities to promote and protect FOE and safety of those who exercise this right.
- While they are happy to accept research based projects, the Programme Board would need to be convinced that such a project would actually have an impact on the issue in the timeframe available. Such projects should clearly explain how the research will be used or disseminated to create impact. Programme funds should not be used to purchase equipment, such as laptops, vehicles etc.
- Their contribution towards each project will be limited to approximately £40k and all projects need to be completed by the 21st of March 2020.
Project proposals must clearly demonstrate how they will support the FCO’s strategy in at least one of the categories mentioned above. All projects are assessed by the Programme Board at the British High Commission, Dhaka, subject to the availability of funds.
