Barbadian NGOs to benefit from an EU grant scheme

Up to ten Barbadian non-governmental organisations (NGO) will have the chance to apply for grant funding aimed at strengthening human rights and human resource development. The Delegation of the European Union to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean will fund to the tune of Bds $250 000 a Small Grants Scheme for Non-State Actors (NSA) where NSAs can apply for grants up to maximum of $25 000.
During a press conference which took place at the EU Delegation’s headquarters this week, Acting Head of European Union (EU) Delegation, Claude Bochu, disclosed that the current grant scheme will become the flagship programme of the Barbados EU NSA Panel and will seek to empower roughly 10 NGOs in Barbados to work on human rights and human resources advocacy.
The EU diplomat stated that the Delegation was cognisant that many of the NSA organisations in Barbados were primarily volunteer bodies and it was therefore felt that the EU could provide assistance in order to help these organisations achieve their respective mandates.
