Call for Project Proposals / Migration
The Embassy of Switzerland is pleased to announce this year’s call for project proposals in the field of migration.
In the coming months, the Embassy will support two small projects with the aim to support the integration of refugees and migrants in Turkey. In accordance with the priorities of its engagement, the Embassy is particularly interested in projects with regards to supporting empowerment of migrants and refugees with special needs for increasing their levels of self-sustainability and self-sufficiency. The projects should aim for a long-term transformative impact. This call is only applicable to local associations and local NGOs that possess in-depth knowledge of Turkish society and its interrelation with migrants and refugees.
All projects regarding human rights are excluded from this call. A separate, specific call will be launched at the end of January by the Embassy of Switzerland.
The funding for each project shall not be below CHF 20’000 or surpass CHF 25’000. This financial support can fund an ongoing project or a new one; however, the project as a whole needs to be finished no later than December 2020.
All applicants shall submit their proposals to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org until Sunday, 2nd February 2020, in the form of a one-page overview, project proposal and a budget sheet. The one page overview shall be filled in as follows:
