The Embassy of Switzerland 2024 Call for Proposals for Human Rights Project

The Embassy of Switzerland in Ankara is pleased to announce its call for project proposals for the year 2024 in the field of human rights.

In 2024, the Embassy will support a limited number of small projects with the aim to strengthen human rights and civil society in Türkiye. In accordance with the priorities of its engagement, the Embassy is particularly interested in projects in the field of Women’s Rights and Gender Equality, Children’s Rights and Wellbeing, Freedom of Expression and Democracy, Promotion of Inter-Religious or Inter-Cultural Dialogue. The projects should aim for a long-term transformative impact. Furthermore, priority will be given to local associations and local NGOs that possess in-depth knowledge of Turkish society. Implementation in remote or rural areas will be an asset.

All projects on migration (including migrant and refugee rights) are excluded from this call and will not be considered

The Embassy’s funding for each project will amount to a maximum of 150.000TL. This financial support can fund an ongoing activity or a new one; however, the submitted project needs to be completed as a whole no later than November 2024.

All applicants shall submit their proposals to the address [email protected] by Wednesday, 31 January 2024 at 23:59 (Türkiye time), in the form of a one-pager description and a separate budget proposal. The Embassy does not provide a specific form, applicants are free to formulate their one-pager as they wish. However, the one-pager must answer the following five questions:

  • What? (theme of the project, what action to be implemented?, “output”)
  • Why? (specific need tackled, relevance, outcome expected)
  • Who? (background on implementing organization, partners and recipient group)
  • Where and when? (location, timeframe)
  • How much? (amount needed; an additional document with a detailed budget of the project is mandatory)

Applicants may provide additional material as deemed necessary by them. However, the one-pager and the budget proposal are mandatory parts of the application. Failure to provide them will result in immediate exclusion from the call. The one-pager and the budget proposal may be submitted in English, Turkish, French, or German.

Please note: Upon reception of the proposals the Embassy may contact you to ask for further details on the project. This does not imply that your project will be chosen.
