The “Micro-Project-Scheme” of the German missions in Pakistan, the German Embassy in Islamabad and the Consulate General in Karachi aims to improve the social and economic development of the most underprivileged groups of society through “self-help”-projects.

For years NGOs, local committees, associations, welfare societies, schools and kindergartens have been supported on a non-profit basis.

What can be funded?
> A project that falls in the range of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) generally qualifies to receive funds;
> For 2021 the special focus of the German missions in Pakistan is on environmental protection and responsible consumption of resources and products as well imparting knowledge and skills from which others in the target group benefit.

Innovative ideas for sustainable proposals are preferred.
