With financial support from the Department for Community Development and Religion (DFCDR), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), under its Low-Value Grant mechanism, is pleased to launch a Call for Proposals for non-government organizations (NGOs) working to address Gender Based Violence (GBV) and/or Sorcery Accusation Related Violence (SARV).
Organisations must demonstrate that they have experience implementing activities related to addressing GBV and/or SARV. Specifically, the proposed projects must contribute to some or all of the following areas:
- Responding to SARV and/or GBV, by providing crisis responses services (including repatriation and reintegration) and other similar activities;
- Operating safe houses for GBV or SARV survivors;
- Providing counselling services to GBV or SARV survivors or perpetrators;
- Engaging in GBV and//or SARV education or prevention activities;
- Providing training or capacity building to organisations working to support SARV or GBV survivors.
- The grant amount that can be awarded over 12 months for all activities is a minimum of PGK 40,000 (Forty thousand Papua New Guinean Kina) to a maximum of PGK 200,000 (Two hundred thousand Papua New Guinean Kina) per proposal. Proposals may cover multiple provinces and multiple issues (eg. crisis response, safe houses operations, counselling, education/prevention), or they may cover only one province and focus on only one issue.
- The implementation period is 12 months from the date of signature of the grant agreement by the Grantee.
Eligible NGOs are encouraged to submit applications for Low-Value Grant Projects. Registered Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), Community Based Organisations (CBOs), Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) are encouraged to submit applications.
NGOs, CSOs, CBOs, and Faith-based organisations interested in applying for Low-Value Grant Projects should meet the following criteria:
- Proof of legal registration of the organisation with the Investment Promotion Authority of PNG.
- At least 2 years demonstrated experience working to implement relevant activities in relation to the topics mentioned above in the Call for Proposals section.
- An experienced team with demonstrated capacities to
- implement the low-value grant projects and
- accountably administer and report on the funding provided. An organisational structure including title, function and years of experience for each of the team members should be included in the application.
- Organisations working at the provincial level, alongside GBV Secretariats or GBV Action Committees have an advantage.
