A new fund for human rights and social justice issues :)

Global human rights fundingGood day, Funds Fans!  Here’s another new fund for human rights and social justice.

The Nippon Foundation provides overseas grants to non-profit organizations based outside of Japan. They can be local, regional or international NGOs/NPOs, and include educational and research institutions. The Foundation does not accept applications from, nor provide grants to, private individuals or for-profit organizations.  Grants range from $25,000+ (estimate)

Grants are given to programs planned and conducted by overseas non-profit organizations in such areas as basic human needs, human resources development, and promotion of international cooperation.

Due weight will be given to proposals which contain at least one of the following:

  • Pragmatic and realistic approaches to issues and problems
  • Potential for future development and self-sustainability
  • Far-reaching social and regional impact
  • Pioneering significance; creating new visions and acting as catalyst for positive changes and social transformations
  • A diversity of race, gender, ethnicity, social class, cultures and societies

There is no application deadline as such, and applications can be received throughout the year. However, since the screening procedures may take as long as five months, it is strongly recommended that applications be submitted at least half a year before the planned start of the project, or whenever the funding will be needed.

There it is, folks!  Go and get it!!
