The South Asia Small Grants Program (SASGP), administered by The Asia Foundation, has opened a call for proposals for Bhutanese organizations. The SASGP will help build the capacity of civil society actors to respond to governance and capacity challenges and provide expertise, mentoring, and concrete tools to sub-grantees to apply in promoting good governance and developing their organizations.

 

 

SASGP hopes to support civil society to achieve three main objectives:
  • To promote greater transparency, accountability, rule of law, and responsiveness in their respective governments;
  • To broaden the space to meaningfully engage with democratic institutions including those related to the criminal justice sector, anti-corruption bodies, human rights commissions, election administration, parliament, media and local governments;
  • To enhance the internal capacity, knowledge base, and programming capabilities of CSOs through capacity development inputs from SASGP.
