On May 2, the Active Citizens Fund in Portugal launches new calls for Portuguese Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and promotes a bilateral matchmaking event between Portuguese NGOs and organisations from the EEA Grants donor countries.
The Active Citizens Fund in Portugal is now accepting proposals for the creation of a platform for the defence and promotion of human rights, which is part of Outcome 4 – “Enhanced capacity and sustainability of civil society (organisations and the sector)”, one of the four areas of the Active Citizens Fund in Portugal.
The Gonçalo da Silveira Foundation, in consortium with the Research Center for Human Development of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, is the Non-Governmental Organisation chosen to implement over the next three years the “Citizenship Education” project, an initiative of the Active Citizens Fund in Portugal.
The Active Citizens Fund has approved 48 social intervention projects promoted by Portuguese non-governmental organizations (NGOs), for about 3.5 million euros. The supported projects will be implemented in mainland Portugal and the Autonomous Region of the Azores over the next three years and were selected from almost two hundred applications submitted in October 2018.
