The results of the recent Scottish Government International Development Small Grants round were announced on 30 March 2018.  Under the programme, a total of £354,860 has been allocated to fund twelve projects which will be delivered across Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania by Scottish-based iNGOs.

We congratulate the successful organisations and are happy to offer them any support from our range of services, that they might find helpful as they move into implementation phase.

Announcing the funding, International Development Minister Dr Alasdair Allan said:

“For the last five years, our small grants have enabled Scottish agencies to make a significant impact and help some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.

“I am delighted that, through these projects, we will continue to improve the lives of those facing hardship and poverty in Kenya and in all our partner countries, making a real and lasting difference.”

Jane Salmonson, Chief Executive at Scotland's International Development Alliance, added:

“The Scottish Government is unique as a donor in its commitment to making grants to small international organisations. It has proved year after year how relatively small sums can achieve significant results overseas while helping our own international organisations here in Scotland to develop and grow.”

 The International Development Small Grants Programme is open to Scottish-based Non-Government Organisations (NGOs). Under the programme, a total of £354,860 has been allocated to fund twelve projects across Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania.
