Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP)
Open year round
Representative Office of Japan to Palestine
The "Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP)" first aims to better ensure “human security” through implementing projects to empower people and communities and address basic human needs in such fields as health, basic education, water supply, poverty alleviation, and any other fields related to basic human needs.
The GGP also aims to foster peace-building from the bottom by assisting local organizations, including local councils, in establishing social and economic infrastructure at the community level. Such bottom-up approach is complementary to the efforts exerted by the central government towards establishing a viable Palestinian state.
An organization must meet ALL of the following conditions to be eligible for GGP application:
Officially recognized as a non-profit organization (non-governmental organization, village/local/municipal council, educational institution, medical institution, cooperatives, etc.)
Neither individuals nor for-profit organizations are eligible.
It is possible for a non-profit organization to work together with for-profit organizations (including Japanese companies) as far as the project aims to realize the public benefit at the grassroots level. Even in such case, however, it is still a non-profit organization who can become an applicant (with for-profit organizations as merely “partners”).
Working for socio-economic development at the grassroots level
Operating for more than two years in the field of the proposed project
