Small Grants Fund Central Asia
The Norwegian Helsinki Committee is pleased to announce the continuation of our small grants fund for Central Asia. All organizations with project proposals related to human rights, democratization or strengthening of civil society may apply. While we are open to all good proposals, we encourage projects in Kazakhstan related to the outlying regions of the country. In Kyrgyzstan, we are particularly interested in projects addressing the basic human rights of vulnerable groups as well as legal initiatives. In Tajikistan, strengthening of the media and the rights of children is important. In addition to our regular program, we are glad to announce that additional grants have been allocated for smaller projects in Kazakhstan. These grants may be up to 9,999 USD, and are intended to support projects in more outlying regions of the country. The deadline and other requirements are the same.
All project proposals should have a first page cover letter with the organization’s details and contact info. The proposal should include a background for the project, a time frame, a description of all planned activities, participants and target group, an assessment of possible risks, as well as the expected goals and result indicators of the project.

The proposal should also include a detailed budget. Budgets should be within the frame of 5 000 to 15 000 USD for the Central Asia grant, and up to 9 999 USD for the Kazakhstan grant.
Organisations from regional Kazakhstan with smaller-sized projects are encouraged to respond to this announcement, rather than to the larger Central-Asia based project. However, all proposals will be considered equally.
All project proposals should be presented in English or Russian languages.
There is no application form, but further guidelines for the application can be downloaded below.
All documents should be submitted electronically to the following address: Grantsfirstname.lastname@example.org in the period from 1 June to 15 July, 2012. The Norwegian Helsinki Committee will consider all applications in August/September, 2012.
