Japan Extends the Largest Grant Assistance to Lebanon under the GGP Scheme

During its fiscal year 2016, Japan extended over 2 million USD to Lebanon, through the Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Program (GGP), which is designed to support NGOs and local municipalities. This fiscal year’s grant aid is the largest annual GGP contribution to Lebanon since its start in 1996, as the total amount of the grant more than doubled over the last few years. GGP aims to mitigate the impact of the Syrian crisis on the host communities and the displaced populations in Lebanon.

The Embassy of Japan to Lebanon concluded recently the grant contracts with nine organizations: Lebanese Association for Mine and Natural Disaster Action (LAMiNDA), Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA), Nour Al Moustakbal School, Rafik Hariri Governmental University Hospital, the Municipality of Bar Elias, Fondation Père Afif Osseiran, the Union of Relief and Development Associations (URDA), Irfan Establishment, and Mines Advisory Group (MAG).
