Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGP)

The Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects (GGP) was first introduced in 1989 to assist Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) by supporting people- centred relatively small projects which have a direct and immediate impact on the well-being of disadvantaged communities at a grass-roots level.

Eligible Applicants

a) Non-profit organizations (NPOs) such as non-governmental organizations, community-based organizations, educational institutes, medical institutes and local governments are eligible to apply. In addition, the applicant organisation must have at least 2 (two) years’ experience in the sector of the proposed project. The applicant organisation is required to have established sound, sustainable and stable foundations in terms of finance, personnel, and project management etc.

b) GGP applications will be considered if they:
  •   directly benefit grassroots level in wider range,
  •   have substantial outcome by one-shot small-scale grant,
  •   could generate sustainable impact in the future.

Scope of Assistance

a) GGP aims to assist self-help efforts of NPO's in:   
  •   social and economic development in rural/urban settings,   
  •   helping socially or economically weak and disadvantaged people,   
  •   empowering local communities for sustainable development, etc.
b) GGP aims to meet various needs whose areas include but are not limited to:  
  •   education, health/sanitation, water/energy, agriculture/indigenous industry, and environment.
Through these projects, GGP aims to contribute to give assistance to those who desire to improve their current situations, to emerge from poverty and to stand upon their own two legs with their self-effort.

Maximum Grant Amount

10,000,000 Japanese Yen (approximately 800,000 BWP) is the maximum amount allocated per project under the GGP.
