Small Grants Programme

In 2013 the Scottish Government launched its three-year pilot of the international development Small Grants Programme, which is specifically designed to support the work of small international NGOs in Scotland who might not otherwise be funded through our larger mainstream funding rounds. The Programme was established to help grow the international development sector in Scotland whilst enabling them to help some of the world's most vulnerable communities. Grants of up to £60,000 are made available for projects lasting up to three years, and £10,000 for feasibility studies and capacity building work lasting up to one year.

Eligible projects must contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (and the post-2015 Framework), and the alleviation of poverty and economic growth in one of the Scottish Government's partner countries.

So far, grants have been awarded for activities in relation to the following Scottish Government priority themes: education; health; sustainable economic development; civic governance and society; food security; renewable energy; climate change; and water.

The Scottish Government is pleased to announce the following grants will be awarded as part of our 4th Small Grants Funding Round, to commence in 2017:

Students for Malawi

Malawi

The aim of this project is to increase the availability of electricity to Chisitu village in southern Malawi by creating an off-grid energy generation and supply chain. Students for Malawi gives students the opportunity to work in Malawi on short term projects such as volunteering at primary schools. In 2013, a pilot project erected three wind turbines in Chisitu village. Through this pilot, contact was made with RENAMA (Renew ‘N’Able Malawi) which has been installing energy kiosks. Engineering students from Scotland will work alongside students from an entrepreneurial college in Malawi to erect more wind turbines and a battery charging bank on the edge of Chisitu village. Energy kiosks supplying home power packs will be put up in the village and 18 women will be trained as energy entrepreneurs, providing them with an income. Local young people will be trained in maintaining the equipment. RENAMA will work with Chisitu Action for Development.

The project aims to reduce the infant mortality rate by improving infant and young child feeding practices (IYCF) amongst the poorest areas of Patna City, Bihar. SAVE first worked with the partner CHARM (Centre for Health and Resource Management) in 2007 on a project with mothers to improve conditions at the birth of their children and encourage breastfeeding, good nutrition, and immunisation. CHARM has been using a model of Behaviour Change Communication to educate mothers on IYCF. The plan is to bring this approach to hard to reach areas including slums in Patna, complimenting existing healthcare services. Change Agents will be recruited from the targeted community and trained on health and nutrition before undertaking home visits and community meetings. The agents will visit pregnant women three times before and after the birth, to educate them on the benefits of breastfeeding. They will encourage women to breastfeed within an hour of birth and to breastfeed exclusively for six months, as well as advising on appropriate complimentary feeding. The target is to reach 2,000 mothers a year.

Malawi Fruits

Malawi

This feasibility study will look at the viability of growing different fruits (bananas, mangoes, pineapples), transporting and selling them to Malawi Mangoes at a sensible price. Malawi Fruits commissioned a feasibility study in 2012 to identify possible cash crops for smallholding farmers in Northern Malawi. This led to a Paprika growing project funded under the Small Grants Programme in 2014. Since the original feasibility study was completed, a fruit processing factory has been set up in central Malawi, called Malawi Mangoes. This is 300 miles south of the farming areas covered by Malawi Fruits. Initial scoping has revealed that there is demand and capacity for much more fruit to be processed at Malawi Mangoes. This proposal would diversify the crops, offering more security. The risks of changing varieties have to be considered, and farmers would need support to grow fruit to the required standard. The study will look at scale and the model of business required, and includes a business plan.
