ALDA and its Belarusian partners Lev Sapieha Foundation and the Belarusian Organisation Working Women (BOWW) are now officially starting the TANDEM project. The project starts with a call for mini grants and partnership projects for promoting sustainable development in Belarus.
The mini grants are open for Belarusian NGOs and municipalities – Guidelines and applications forms can be downloaded on the link below on this site. The mini grants for the civic initiatives are up to 4,000 Euro and for partnership projects up to 8,000 Euro. These grants will support concrete activities in the year 2012 and 2013 focussing on building sustainable relations and cooperation between civil society organisations and local authorities. The deadline for applications is November 17.
As part of the partnership projects the TANDEM steering committee will identify international partners (NGOs or local authorities) from other European countries who are interested in developing their contacts and support the democratic development in Belarus. These international partners will participate in a partnership project to share their experience and support the implementation of the project.
ALDA is therefore calling interested NGOs and local authorities who are interested in sharing their experience and support civil society activities in Belarus to contact ALDA to be included in the pool of possible international partners for the partnership projects.
A conference for the groups that have been awarded grants will take place in Mid December and will also include the international partners of the partnership projects. This conference will discuss and share experience and ideas between the projects that will be supported as part of the TANDEM project.
If you are interested in becoming a partner for partnership or want to have more information about the project, please contact Peter Sondergaard at or +32 274 201 61.
TANDEM is supported by the European Union’s Non-State Actors and Local
Authorities in Development programme.
