ALDA and the project partners are now officially starting the TANDEM II project. The project starts with a call for application for mini-grants and partnership projects for promoting sustainable development in Belarus. The mini-grants are open for Belarusian NGOs, initiative groups and local authorities – the guidelines and applications form can be downloaded here (английский или же русский).
The mini-grants for the civic initiatives are up to 5,000 Euro and for partnership projects up to 9,000 Euro. These grants will support concrete activities focussing on building sustainable development and cooperation between civil society and local authorities. The deadline for applications is 31 July.
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 the autumn this year and will also include the international partners of the partnership projects. This conference will discuss and share experiences and ideas between the projects that will be supported as part of the TANDEM II project.
If you are interested in becoming a partner for a partnership or want to have more information about the project, please contact Peter Sondergaard at peter.sondergaard@aldaintranet.org or +32 274 201 61.
TANDEM is supported by the European Union’s Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development programme.
