The World Bank calls for proposals

   1/13/2006

The Small Grants Program of the World Bank was created in 1983 as a way of supporting small, nonprofit, non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The Program supports activities which center around promoting dialogue, networking, dissemination of information and exchange of experience between NGOs. Since 1999, this Program was decentralized to The World Bank office in Hanoi. We are pleased to announce the start of the 7th year of the Small Grants Program in Vietnam with the total amount equivalent to 540 million Vietnam Dong made available for in-country grants to national NGOs. Activities eligible for grant receipt should focus on: networking and building partnership, information sharing, capacity building, promotion of dialogue, participation, and exchange of experiences on development issues. These activities may be through conferences and seminars, publications, audio-visual materials, or other networking and capacity building efforts. Small Grants must be used for a specific activity to be completed within one year of the date the grant is awarded. Priority is given to organizations not supported by the Program in previous years and organizations are not eligible for more than three grants from the Small Grants Program within a five-year period. Please note that the Small Grants Program will not provide support for operational projects; research programs; formal academic training programs; ongoing institutional support; scholarships, fellowships, study programs; equipment purchase, service provision, construction of facilities or for individuals applying on their own behalf, including for travel or studies. Due to limited funding availability, only organizations with a development rather than charity purpose will be eligible. The maximum size of each grant will be 63 million Vietnam Dong. Grant proposals will be assessed on a competitive basis, to select the most innovative activities. If your NGO meets the above-mentioned requirements and would like to apply for a grant, please pick up application form and guidance at the Reception at World Bank Office, 8th floor, 63 Ly Thai To Street, Hanoi. For more information please contact Ms. Bo Thi Hong Mai (tel.: 04 9346600 ext 300, fax: 04-934-6597; email: mbo@worldbank.org. Organizations outside Hanoi may also contact our office to get this form by mail or email. Click here for a copy of the application form in MS Words The deadline for submission of your application is February 15, 2006 (for those outside Hanoi, the deadline is based on the date of the post-office on the envelope). Decisions on grants will be made by the end of March, 2006 and the selected proposals will be notified shortly afterwards. We look forward to receiving many exciting proposals on a wide range of topics.
