The first steps toward the establishment of a UN-led 'Small Grants Facility' for victims of human trafficking were taken recently in a move aimed at strengthening on-the-ground assistance to survivors of this brutal crime. The SGF aims to provide tangible support, through established channels, to victims of trafficking in persons.
The Fund affords people the world over the opportunity to make a tangible difference to the lives of trafficking victims. NGOs and Governments can all play a part. Each and every contribution, big and small, will make a difference in the life of someone who has been trafficked.
Key Facts of the 2011 SGF
The 2011 Small Grants Facility will accept project proposals from eligible not-for-profit, non-governmental organizations (NGOs). NGOs can submit applications on behalf of a coalition (more than 4 organizations), a consortium (minimum of 2 other organizations and a maximum of 4), but the NGO will be the primary focal point and will be financially responsible for the delivery of the grant.
Applicants may request grants of up to USD 25,000 per year, for project proposals ranging between 6 and 36 months.
All applications must be submitted in English. The Small Grants Facility 2011 launched on 8 March 2011 and will close on 30 April 2011 at 24:00 CET.
In 2011, two thematic priorities have been established:
- Cross-border and inter-regional activities providing direct humanitarian, legal and/or financial assistance to victims.
- Effective remedies for victims of human trafficking, including, but not limited to, legal support, access to justice and compensation.
All proposals must focus on either one or both of the above-listed thematic priorities. If an application fails to respond to at least one of the two thematic priorities, it will be ineligible to receive funding.
