Call for Submission of Small Local Projects for 2020

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Hanoi announces a call for proposals of the small local projects, which could be supported by a financial contribution within the framework of the Czech Republic development cooperation.

Small local projects are small-scale development projects that are managed directly by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Hanoi. The project implementer is a local entity registered in Vietnam. It can be an educational, healthcare, social or cultural institution, a non-governmental non-profit organization, a cooperative, a local administration body or a local community.

The aim of this bilateral foreign development cooperation instrument of the Czech Republic is not to build capacity of the implementer but to support its development activities of a smaller scale. The small local projects should not only bring development outputs, but should also contribute to increasing the visibility of the Czech Republic in the country. Various projects can be supported, such as projects to promote local development, improve health or medical care, eradicate poverty, make education available, educate people in rural areas, protect the environment, or improve the position of women in the society.
