AFEW International in collaboration with Isonch va Hayot made next important step in striving Uzbek non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working for vulnerable populations in enhancing their fundraising capabilities. On May 17, in the framework of the project “Advocating vulnerable groups’ rights through a stronger civil society in Uzbekistan” partners conducted a comprehensive training session focused on acquiring funding for advocacy and service provision projects on a smaller scale.
During the session, participants got valuable knowledge on effectively preparing for fundraising initiatives. They gained insights on tailoring their project concepts to meet the specific requirements of potential donors and honed their skills in completing application forms seamlessly.
By strengthening the fundraising capacities of Uzbek NGOs working for vulnerable populations, we can contribute to their sustainable growth and their ability to make a positive impact in the community.
The project “Advocating vulnerable groups’ rights through a stronger civil society in Uzbekistan” started in 2022. It is dedicated to empowering underserved groups in Uzbekistan, such as people vulnerable to discrimination – women, people with disabilities, people living with or at high risk of HIV and migrants, and to protect their rights and freedoms through strengthening and building local CSOs’ own organisations and capacities, thereby strengthening civil society in Uzbekistan.
By giving voice to vulnerable groups and seeking to participate in decision-making, the project contributes to the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 16 on developing an inclusive society and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions.
