The purpose of this fund is to support British Embassy areas of interest mentioned below.
Specific areas of focus are:
Bidders should have significant understanding of religious persecution. An understanding of government programming would be an advantage. The organisation will be able to demonstrate a strong track record of financial management and internal governance.
We are looking for creative and original project ideas which could help us achieve any of the above goals.
Successful bids will be for innovative activities that will have the greatest impact and deliver real change on the FoRB agenda in Iraq. We are less interested in proposals which focus purely on seminars, workshops or the production of research reports that end in themselves. Instead, proposals should include action-oriented ideas which will bring about concrete outcomes.
Project activity must be completed before 31 March 2022. The total amount of funding available is 30,000 GBP. We are unable to fund multiple-year projects. The successful implementer is required to issue quarterly reports.
Projects not eligible for funding
Projects focused on service delivery or projects that support military, religious affairs, construction activities, capital costs, or mainly staff salaries are ineligible.
Bids will be assessed against the following criteria:
- alignment with the above mentioned priorities and outcomes
- clear practical focus leading to tangible next steps
- outcomes are achievable within the funding period
- clear monitoring and evaluation procedures
- strong risk and financial management, including consideration of safeguarding risks
- overall value for money
How to apply
Interested implementers are invited to submit their Proposal and Activity Based Budget, with approximate expected value of fund, to the embassy by 03 October 2021.
