An application is possible every year from 1st January to 31st March

In order to improve the basic needs of most vulnerable population, the embassy offers the possibility to support small scale development projects within the framework of technical cooperation.

This type of fast and directly visible aid is treasured and well-known by the local Population.

A particular attention is paid to the gender-effect of each supported project in order to improve living conditions of the local women.

Especially eligible are projects, which cannot be financed by local organisations (like NGO, missions, or similar). A support of individuals or already privileged groups is not possible. Beyond this, a financing of salaries or recurrent payments for consumer goods (leek feeding stuff, medicine, draperies etc.) is also excluded.

Due to the high number of applications, the sponsorship is limited in Cameroon to the maximum amount of 10.000 Euro. The project should be accompanied by a person of trust known by the embassy (e.g. coming from the German development cooperation) and carried out together with the project execution organisation.
Small scale projects should be completed within the current fiscal year and preferably handed in to the embassy at the beginning of the year.
