    Apply: Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Fund

    Deadline: 03 July, 2020

    The U.S. Embassy Gaborone has announced an open competition for organisations to submit applications to implement community-initiated development projects through the Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Fund (ASSHF) Small Grants Programme.

    The Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Fund programme is a grassroots assistance programme that funds grants for small development activities that generate public awareness of U.S. foreign assistance efforts that fall outside the structure of other established U.S. assistance projects. Equally important, the ASSHF programme is structured to encourage communities to be self-reliant and undertake similar activities on their own in the future.

    • All applicants must be registered nonprofits based in Botswana
    • Proposed programmes should be completed in twelve months or less
    • Proposals are welcome from community-based organisations, faith-based organisations, and non-governmental organisations that work directly with communities
