About this grant
People in Need (PIN), based in Prague, Czech Republic, is a unique institution in Central/Eastern Europe and Russia: It is one of the larger indigenous non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the region and one of a few that works internationally, implementing aid projects in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Caribbean. The organization works to provide humanitarian aid to countries in crisis and advocates for human rights and democratic freedoms worldwide. To ensure its long-term sustainability, PIN has established a reserve fund.Multiyear funding will contribute to the reserve fund, which will generate income from investments that will be used to supplement core costs. PIN’s goal is to raise $1 million for the reserve fund.PIN was established in 1992 to promote civil society development in the Czech Republic and abroad.
