Guidelines For Applicants Applying For Projects Operating In Countries Overseas

Funds are available for capital and revenue funding. The funding programme is designed to help small and medium size initiatives.  Trustees will consider applications from any countries within the developing world.  Trustees wish to fund community development, education and health initiatives, Trustees will particularly welcome projects that address the needs and potential of girls and women.

Trustees will be pleased to hear from UK Non Governmental Organisations/charities and hope that UK NGOs/charities will encourage their local partners, if appropriate, to apply directly to Hilden for grant aid.
