UN.GIFT Call For Proposal from Civil Society

The United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT) was conceived to promote the global fight on human trafficking, on the basis of international agreements reached at the UN. To date, over 117 countries have signed the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons especially Women and Children, which supplements the Palermo Convention against trans-national organized crime.

Objectives:
  1. To foster awareness, global commitment and action to counter human trafficking in partnership with different stakeholders including governments, the international community, non-governmental organizations and other elements of civil society and media
  2. To create and strengthen support structures for victims of trafficking

Small Grants Facility
UN.GIFT has established a Small Grants Facility with the overall objective to increase and improve support structures for victims of human trafficking around the world. Through a Call for Proposals, relevant organizations will be identified and the most promising projects will be selected. Civil society organizations will receive grants either to sustain existing anti-human trafficking initiatives or to engage in additional counter-trafficking activities. In additions, the UN.GIFT website will provide a virtual forum for CSOs to promote their projects, to network with other stakeholders and to showcase their activities to the international community.
The current Call for Proposals as part of the UN.GIFT Small Grants Facility will open on 1 March 2010 and will close on 5 April 2010 or once the first 300 applications have been received. In 2010, a total amount of USD 500,000 will be disbursed through the Call for Proposals to selected CSOs. Applicants may request grants from USD 30,000 to USD 50,000 from UN.GIFT. The final number of projects awarded will depend on the proposed budgets of selected projects.

The following activities have been identified as priority lines for the current Call for Proposals:
  • The empowerment of vulnerable groups and communities
  • Direct victim support
  • Cooperation between NGOs from countries of origin and destination
  • Collection of evidence-based knowledge
