Funding programme of German Federal Foreign office

Since 2014, the Foreign Office programme “Expanding Cooperation with Civil Society in the Eastern Partnership Countries and Russia” (link to the page of the programme) has been enabling civil society organisations to play their part as key actors and important partners of governance.
The German Government is funding measures that provide comprehensive support to the necessary transformation and internal integration processes via collaboration between German civil society and civil societies in the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, Ukraine) and Russia. This spans the entire range of cultural and civic education projects – with a focus on media, academia, education including vocational training, culture, language and work with young people. As many dedicated actors as possible from a target country’s rural regions and urban centres should be involved in order to enhance social cohesion and the establishment of civil-society structures in the region and to promote the principles of a fundamentally free, democratic and pluralist order.
