Organisations can apply for grants up to £5,000 for smaller projects or up to £20,000 for larger projects.
Proposals should be for work in poor communities overseas which are supported by organisations with a significant presence in Northern Ireland. The scheme particularly invites applications:
* For costs associated with volunteering programmes that focus particularly on the development and transfer of skills to poor entities and communities overseas.
* Which support sustainable indigenous projects overseas that enhance local social and economic rights and autonomy. Projects encouraging social enterprise and entrepreneurism will be particularly favoured.
* For projects that help build the capacity of advocacy and civil society representative organisations overseas, that are working in areas of local basic social and economic rights
Application packs and ./guidance can be obtained by telephoning the Foundation on 028 9032 3000. The closing date for applications is 24 September 2010.
