Offer: Grants Empower People with Disabilities in Developing Countries

The ABILIS Foundation, a development fund founded in Finland, supports the empowerment of people with disabilities in developing countries. The Foundation supports activities that contribute toward equal opportunities for people with disabilities in society through human rights, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. Special priority is given to projects advocating for human rights of people with disabilities and to activities developed and implemented by women with disabilities.

Grants ranging from €500 to €10,000 are available for projects initiated by organizations that are run by persons who have a disability, be it related to mobility, vision, hearing, or any other type of disability. Organizations that are run by parents of children with disabilities may also apply.

In order to be eligible for support, organizations must have a certificate of registration and be based in a country defined as qualifying for Official Development Assistance.

Applicants based in India, Bangladesh, Uganda, Kazakhstan, Tanzania, and Ethiopia should contact ABILIS partner organizations - http://www.abilis.fi/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=56&Ite... for an application form.

Applicants located in other eligible countries must contact the Foundation to request the application form.

Application guidelines and contact information are available on the Foundation’s website:
