The Embassy of Finland has announced an open call for the Finnish Fund for Local Cooperation (FLC).

Fund for Local cooperation is a funding tool for local civil society organisations and is a part of Finland’s Country Programme in Tanzania. It complements the Finnish-Tanzanian bilateral cooperation especially under the outcome area 1: Inclusive development through active citizenship.

The 2023 call is looking for project proposals, which aim at supporting the following:

  • Human rights and media freedom
  • Entrepreneurship and labor market skills for youth

The Embassy of Finland’s Fund for Local Cooperation (FLC) builds on the view that sustainable development cannot be achieved without an active civil society. In Tanzania, civil society organizations are needed both for their advocacy work as well as service delivery. The FLC aims to build partnerships between the civil society organizations and the Embassy of Finland and to support the organizations so that they can operate more effectively.

With FLC, the organizations can influence policy processes, monitor government actions, and enhance service delivery to vulnerable groups with the ultimate aim of poverty reduction and realization of human rights.
