Human rights are the cornerstone of human dignity, freedom and development in a society. The Human Rights Fund (MRF) supports organizations that work for human rights worldwide.
The government of the Netherlands is seeking applications for its Human Rights Fund to provide grants to organizations that work to promote human rights around the world.
There are several themes for applications facing the Human Rights issues:
* Human rights defenders;
* Equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people;
* Most flagrant violations (capital punishment and torture);
* Freedom of expression;
* Internet freedom;
* Freedom of religion and belief;
* Business and human rights;
* Impunity of international crimes;
MRF 2017-2020 grants are intended for projects run by independent, not-for-profit civil society organizations with a legal personality that works in a result-oriented way to protect and promote human rights. In this framework, a ‘civil society organization’ (CSO) is a not-for-profit organization, neither established by a government body nor linked to a government body either de facto or under its constitution, which is a legal person under the civil law.
A total of €19 million is available under the MRF 2017-2020. The minimum grant amount is €500,000 and the maximum €2 million for projects under all themes.
Deadline: 31 August 2018
