CALL FOR GRANTING AND TRAINING for strengthening capacities of CSOs providing assistance in migrant’s human rights in Serbia and Macedonia

 

 

 

The Programme aims to improve the efficiency of work of the 20 local CSOs providing assistance to migrants, since, as working directly with them, they are in a perfect position to identify, possibly document and independently report on the human rights violations, and/or to assist in protection of their human rights. The capacities of the organizations will be developed to enable them to competently handle the situations of violations of migrants’ human rights, to spot, record and report on the violations, to provide basic administrative, legal and logistic support to migrants whose human rights have been violated, and to use the quick response mechanism provided by the Help on the route network that will initially be set up by project coordinator and partners. In order to facilitate the 20 CSOs operations, financial support will be provided during the course of this action, and in order to ensure their sustainability in follow up to this action.

 

We are inviting civil society organisations (CSOs) to submit Application Forms related to different aspects of provision of assistance to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

 

 

 

After the first round of the call that was opened from March 21 to April 21, 15 CSOs were selected for the award of grants ( 10 in Serbia and 5 in Macedonia). This is the second round of the call for proposals for additional 5 CSOs from Serbia. The total amount for the second round is 75,000 EUR for 5 CSOs from Serbia, 15,000 EUR per organization.

 

The Call is opened until 25 May 2017, for all CSOs from Serbia
