About this grant

The program goal is to support civil society development in Belarus by building the capacity of Belarusian nongovernmental organizations. The grantee, a German nonprofit organization with more than ten years’ experience supporting civil society in Belarus, will work in partnership with United Way Belarus, the country’s leading support center for nonprofit organizations.
