"As part of its Official Development Assistance (ODA), the Government of Japan has offered financial aid particularly for development projects initiated by local communities in order to meet a diversity of basic human needs at the grassroots level. Known as the “Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP)”, this aid scheme provides funds for organizations such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local authorities on a project basis. Once a project proposal is submitted by an eligible organization, it is examined by the Government of Japan in various aspects, and it will be awarded only when judged as feasible, sustainable, and beneficial to the entire community. We believe that the GGP, by making financial support more open to the grassroots level, will directly empower people, especially those in marginalized or any other disadvantaged groups, and contribute to immediate improvement of their living conditions.
