RNIP Awards Trust Fund to CSOs

For the year 2005, The RNIP Trust Fund Committee initially approved the support for the implementation of eight (8) project proposals submitted for funding by civil society organization (CSO) partners in Southeast Asia. CSOs represented during the First RNIP Workshop held in the Philippines in April 2005 (see related story) were invited to submit project proposals. They were also requested to disseminate the invitation to their partner NGOs. A total of twenty project proposals were received by the RNIP-PCU: four from Indonesia, three from Malaysia, 12 from the Philippines, and one from Thailand. Two project proposals (one from Thailand and another from Indonesia) are under consideration for funding subject to some revisions. These will complete the ten projects slated for funding before the yearend.

The following table shows the CSOs with the title of their projects approved for implementation under the RNIP Trust Fund scheme:

Related information and announcements will be posted in the next issues of the RNIP e-Bulletin. Please visit the RNIP website www.rnip.net for the Trust Fund criteria and guidelines.
