Applications have opened for funding to help some of the world’s poorest communities.

The Scottish Government’s International Development Small Grants Programme is open to Scottish based organisations looking to expand their work abroad.

The programme is administered by the Corra Foundation and developed in partnership with the Scotland’s International Development Alliance and Scotland Malawi Partnership (SMP).

It is designed to accommodate smaller funding requests: project grants up to £60,000 are available for over a three year period.

Launching the fund, international development minister Alasdair Allan said that the grants help to save lives in some of the world’s poorest communities.

Dr Allan said: “Projects like this show our commitment in helping some of the world’s most vulnerable people and enhance Scotland’s role as a good global citizen.

“Over the last four years, the programme has supported this and many other development projects in our partner countries, enabling Scottish agencies to make an impact and improve people’s lives.”

Corra’s Fiona Duncan, said: “Over the years, the small grants programme has shown the impact that relatively small sums of money can have on local communities.”
