ministry for foreign affairs of finland globe still

The Fund for Local Cooperation (FLC) of the Embassy of Finland in Windhoek is an instrument for funding non-profit projects in Namibia. A thematic call for project proposals, specifically aimed at combating gender-based violence (GBV) and/or advancing the rights of women and girls is now open and will be closed on 30 April 2021 at 16:15 local time (GMT/UTC+2).

As a development policy instrument, the FLC supports the goals and principles of the Finnish development policy and its priority areas.

This special thematic call for proposals is intended to address gender-based violence and/or the rights of women and girls. The main focus of the proposed project should be one of the two areas.

The projects should be implemented with a human rights-based approach. The Embassy also values projects that are in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Eligibility criteria for FLC partnership

The size of the Embassy's FLC portfolio is dependent on the annual budget of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. The support is intended for project-based support, meaning that the FLC is not meant for core funding.

Selected projects will receive a grant between 30 000-80 000 EUR. Between 1-3 projects will be selected according to the Embassy’s discretion. The projects must be implemented within a one year-period from the signing of the agreement.
