About the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects (GGP) scheme

The world today is facing a variety of challenges including poverty, starvation, infectious diseases, economic crisis, climate change and environmental issues. These endanger many lives and force them to live in difficult circumstances. For this, there is an increasing need for cooperation by the entire international community to realize a peaceful and affluent society in which everybody can live their individual lives in a humane manner to achieve which, cooperation with grassroots level organization is an effective means.

The Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects (GGP) scheme was formulated to assist NGOs and local public authorities in developing countries in responding to various development needs in a prompt and complete manner. The GGP scheme primarily targets areas that aim to improve basic human needs, typically construction of schools, improvement of medical facilities, imparting vocational trainings, creation of sanitation infrastructure and projects concerning poverty alleviation. Over the years, the GGP scheme has acquired excellent global reputation for providing timely support to the local communities at the grassroots level.
