Offer: Grants from Foreign Embassies

When evaluating funding opportunities for your NGO, make sure to assess whether foreign embassies have developed tailored programmes to support and strengthen civil society in your country. Embassies play a vital role in the co-ordination of bilateral and multilateral development efforts. Certain Embassies organise and directly implement a donor’s country bilateral aid (such as the Dutch Embassies). Other donor countries, such as Germany, manage entire grant schemes through their diplomatic offices abroad. Embassies could also provide crucial training schemes to support the managerial and administrative capacity of NGO workers (such as the British Embassy) and they also serve as platforms to get in contact with other local and international NGOs working in your same field of action.

This guide will take in account programmes and strategies of 5 Embassies working in developing countries. As such, you should read this guide in order to understand what strategies have been so far implemented and also to get ideas on how to get in contact with your local embassy and propose collaborative projects.
