Fund for Social Development: Small Grants Programme for NGOs in Ghana

The French Cooperation in Ghana has issued a call for proposals for Ghanaian civil society organizations to apply for its Small Grants Progrmme under the Fund for Social Development. The projects should be focused upon on poverty alleviation through the implementation of income-generating activities or the promotion of social basic services. Projects targeting women, deprived youth and other vulnerable groups are encouraged.

The implementation duration of the project has to be of 6 months minimum and not exceed 18 months; the financial support from the FSD will amount to a minimum of 8, 000 Euros (about 15, 000 GHS) and a maximum of 60, 000 Euros (about 115, 000 GHS); a significant contribution (in cash or in kind) must be made by the applicant, amounting to 30% of the total budget of the project (and reduced to 10% in particular and justified cases, except for District Assemblies where the 30% threshold cannot be reduced); and co-funding is possible but cannot replace the applicant’s contribution.

There two phases in the application process. In the first phase, only concept notes will be accepted and in the second phase, selected organizations based on the review of concept notes will be requested for full applications.

The deadline to submit concept notes is 25 February 2011. For more, visit this link.
