The Natural Disaster Fund Microgrants calls for team members

NDF Call 3 min

Dear SCI activists, 

Following the organised, as well as spontaneous, initiatives of SCI branches, group members and working groups as an answer to natural disasters and their consequences all over the world over the last years, SCI International has decided to set up a Natural Disaster Fund. Team members offer support to future projects of that kind, enabling volunteers to implement projects in the field by providing microgrants up to €500 per application. 

Two types of funding areas are eligible: 

  • Immediate support after a natural disaster to the affected people and living world 
  • Mid- and long-term projects which include voluntary work with direct and indirect benefits for the local affected population and ecosystem.

The team is now looking for motivated SCI activists with certain experience or interest in natural disaster relief work, setting up an online team to manage the Natural Disaster Fund Microgrants.

The general management of the Natural Disaster Fund in collaboration with the International Secretariat include the following tasks:

  • Intensive promotion of this funding opportunity within the SCI movement
  • Update the necessary documents (application and evaluation forms, funding criteria, etc.) 
  • Communicate with the team and the applicants attending Skype meetings and responding to email enquiries
  • Evaluate applications and approve grants
  • Collect reports of the granted projects and activities and suggest and promote best practices in natural disaster relief work by evaluating previous projects 
  • Set up a fundraising strategy for donations to refill the Natural Disaster Fund
