The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany has the possibility to offer financial assistance to Rwandese associations for carrying out micro projects.

The next possible date to apply for micro projects will be October 2020. 

Definition of micro project:

Your project is supposed to improve the living conditions of several beneficiaries. Please note that there are no priority fields as far as a sponsorship for a project is concerned, i.e. this Embassy has supported in recent years agricultural and educational projects as well as small scale industries and different kinds of breeding projects.

The amount available per project is in the range of 5.000 to 15.000 EUR (approximately 5 Mio. RWF to 15 Mio. RWF). The time of execution of the project must not exceed six months.


How to take part in the programme:

Your written application should include a description of the intended activities. Please use the relevant application forms for this purpose.

Documentation for the registration of your organisation must be provided

The required description should give details about the exact place and the beneficiaries of the project as well as some explanation concerning the long term objectives.

It would be appreciated if the beneficiaries contribute to the project costs. This contribution should either be a financial or instead a material one.

The expected expenses should be proven by handing in pro-forma invoices.


Date of submission of project proposals:

Thank you very much all those that submitted their applications for micro projects for 2020.

Fom January to March the German Embassy will select the projects to be sponsored. The responsible person for a selected project will soon afterwards be invited for further discussion and subsequently for the signing of the contract.

If we have not contacted you by 31 March 2020, your project proposal has unfortunately not been selected.

The next possible date to apply for micro projects will be October 2020.
