South Asia Small Grants Program (SASGP)

The Asia Foundation (TAF) manages the South Asia Small Grants Program (SASGP). The SASGP will provide small grants to eligible Civil Society Organizations (CSOs)/Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) in five South Asian countries: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Designed as a flexible mechanism to respond to existing contexts and emerging opportunities, the open grant window will support CSOs to work on critical governance challenges around four core themes:

  • Increasing public sector accountability and transparency;
  • Strengthening the rule of law;
  • Promoting civil society participation and media in these efforts; and
  • Strengthening democratic institutions and practices.

The call for proposals opens on March 15, 2020 and will close on April 15, 2020. For detail information please see the application materials here in Bangla and English.
