Call for applications "LGBTI Fund"

The International Fund for Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity launches a third call for projects in the service of the promotion and effective realization of all human rights for LGBTI people. The fund will award successful applicants a grant ranging from 50,000 to 60,000 euros.

The International Fund for Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

The International Fund for Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity was created in 2009 by France, the Netherlands and Norway, following the first statement on the orientation and gender identity co-supported by France and the Netherlands at the United Nations General Assembly in 2008.

Since its creation, the Fund has received nearly € 800,000 (60% of which are French contributions). These contributions made it possible to launch two calls for projects in 2010 and 2014, during which seven projects were selected (China, Georgia, Uganda, Philippines, Dominican Republic, Togo, Vietnam).

Objectives of the third call for projects

The fund has launched a third call for proposals whose specific objectives are to contribute :

  • documentation of human rights violations targeting LGBTI people
  • to improve respect for their rights
  • building the capacity of organizations that defend the rights of LGBTI people

Each grant will be between 50,000 and 60,000 euros, which can cover up to 100% of the project budget over a period of 12 to 24 months.

Applicants must meet the following criteria :

  • to be a legal person
