The United States called for proposals from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for projects on Democracy, Human Rights and Rule of Law in Sri Lanka. It called for a Request for Proposals (RFP) from organizations interested in submitting proposals for projects that will support the Bureau’s policy priorities of promoting reconciliation and advancing transparency and accountability in Sri Lanka.
Announcing two projects, to advance “reconciliation and cooperation across religious and ethnic lines” and for “advancing transparency and accountability and countering corruption”, a total of approximately $1,750,000 of funding would be made available said the State Department.
The first project is aimed at facilitating “cooperation across religious and ethnic lines to advance reconciliation so that all citizens of Sri Lanka can live with each other in peace”, with the other focusing on countering “counter corruption and advance transparency and accountability”.
The deadline for submission is July 16, 2015. (State Gov)
