How NGO’s can apply for support from Finland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) play an important role in Finnish Development Co-operation. NGOs provide Finnish citizens with a platform to actively co-operate with southern hemisphere organisations and develop people-to-people networks. This manual aims to give clear guidelines on how to apply for NGO support from Finland's Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Part I: Guidelines for Project Planning is designed to assist in project planning. It is a practical toolbox for using common sense in a systematic manner. In addition common terminology and concepts used in development co-operation are explained (part I, chapter I).

Part II Guidelines for Application contains detailed instructions for completing the application form, the Project Plan and the Annual Report. The principles and procedures that apply to Project support are also outlined in this section.
