The aim of the call is to provide support for human rights related activities in Latvia, and each project has to create positive changes in one of the following three directions:

  • 600 victims of discrimination and human rights violations benefiting from services provided by supported CSOs in Latvia;
  • decreased share of people in Latvia who do not know where to find help in cases of discrimination

Project may include activities that promote public awareness about human rights (campaigns, educational classes, cross-cultural activities and others) and foster capacity of civil society organizations working in the field of human rights (interest representation, services for victims of human rights violations and discrimination, researches etc.). The project can also include activities to strengthen the capacity of the organisation if such activities are necessary to achieve the objective of the project.

The total budget available for this call is EUR 374 431 and the amount of the grant for one project is EUR 40 000 to EUR 105 000 (the financing of the ACF covers up to 100% of the total budget of the project).
