UK opens bids for Kenya human rights projects
from MARIA MACHARIA in Nairobi, Kenya
NAIROBI – THE United Kingdom has called for bids for human rights projects in Kenya for the financial year 2015.
The project is done under teh auspices of the Human Rights and Democracy Programme (HRDP), which is the Foreign Affairs and Commonwealth Office’s (CFO’s) dedicated annual fund supporting human rights and democracy work overseas.
Through targeted projects, it aims to lift the capacity of governments and civil society to promote and protect human rights.
HRDP will fund projects up to the value of £200 000.
Projects in excess of this amount may be considered exceptionally after consultation with the HRDP Team.
There are no restrictions on the number of proposals an implementer can submit for funding.
However, each Embassy or High Commission is only able to submit a limited number of full proposals to the HRDP Programme Board in London for final assessment.
The HRDP accepts project proposals from civil society, governments, think-tanks and other UK government departments.
