Proposals invited for the Next Funding Cycle by the National Endowment for Democracy Source – 20.01.2012

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world. Each year, NED makes more than 1,000 grants to support the projects of non-governmental groups abroad who are working for democratic goals in more than 90 countries.  Since its founding in 1983, the Endowment has remained on the leading edge of democratic struggles everywhere, while evolving into a multifaceted institution that is a hub of activity, resources and intellectual exchange for activists, practitioners and scholars of democracy the world over.

NED’s direct grants are aimed at providing financial support to hundreds of nongovernmental groups abroad working to ensure human rights, an independent media, the rule of law and to advance other democratic goals.

NED encourages applications for financial support from activist organizations in diverse situations, such as transitional countries where the goal is democratic consolidation, authoritarian countries where the goals are liberalization, and the protection of human rights.

In this context, NED is currently seeking grant proposals from eligible organizations to be considered during the next board meeting scheduled to be held on March 30, 2012.

Programs Eligible for Grants

NED is especially interested in proposals that originate with local democratic groups. It is also interested in nonpartisan programs seeking to strengthen democratic values. Note that the Endowment does not make grants to individuals.

Selection Procedure

NED Board of Directors meets every quarter for reviewing and evaluating the grant proposals. In addition to evaluating how a program fits within the Endowment’s overall priorities, the Board considers factors such as the urgency of a program, its relevance to specific needs and conditions in a particular country, and the democratic commitment and experience of the applicant.

Last date for submission of grant proposals for the next cycle is January 20, 2012

Four hack suspects linked to terrorist group

The FBI and Philippine law enforcement officials arrested four people in the Philippines this week who were allegedly paid by terrorists to hack into AT&T’s system, but the company said its system was not breached.

The four, who were arrested Wednesday in Manila, were paid by the same Saudi Arabian-based terrorist group identified by the FBI as funding the 2008 attack on Mumbai, the Philippines’ Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) said in a statement. The coordinated attacks in India’s largest city claimed 164 lives and wounded at least 308.

“The hacking activity resulted in almost $2 million in losses incurred by the company,” the CIDG said in a statement.

The suspects hacked the trunk-like PBX (private branch exchange) phone lines of different telecommunications companies, including AT&T, the CIDG said. Money stolen in the hacks was diverted to bank accounts belonging to the terrorists, who paid the Filipino hackers on commission, the group said.

The four allegedly worked for a group originally run by Muhammad Zamir, a Pakistani arrested by the FBI in 2007 who was associated with Jemaah Islamiah, a Southeast Asian militant group with links to Al Qaeda.

“Zamir’s group, later tagged by the FBI to be the financial source of the terrorist attack in Mumbai, India, on November 26, 2008, is also the same group that paid Kwan’s group of hackers in Manila,” Police Senior Superintendent Gilbert Sosa said in the statement.

An AT&T representative told Reuters that it “ended up writing off some fraudulent charges that appeared on customer bills” but did not comment on the $2 million figure.

“AT&T and its network were neither targeted nor breached by the hackers,” AT&T spokeswoman Jan Rasmussen said. “AT&T only assisted law enforcement in the investigation that led to the arrest of a group of hackers.”

The FBI requested the CIDG’s assistance in March after discovering the hacking group had targeted AT&T in the U.S., the CIDG said.

Earlier in the week, AT&T said it thwarted an attempt to steal mobile customer data and that no accounts were breached.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation seeks grants proposals to transform health and agricultural development in the world’s poorest countries / deadline 17 nov 2011/

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is seeking proposals for Round 8 of its Grand Challenges Explorations. The initiative is the part of a $100 million in grants aimed at encouraging innovation in the fields of global health and development research.

The initiative invites scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs from around the world to submit proposals for the opportunity to win $100,000 in grant and pursue their unconventional ideas aimed at transforming health and agricultural development in the world’s poorest countries.

Topics of Grand Challenges Explorations Round 8

  • Protect Crop Plants from Biotic Stresses From Field to Market
  • Explore Nutrition for Healthy Growth of Infants and Children
  • Apply Synthetic Biology to Global Health Challenges
  • Design New Approaches to Optimize Immunization Systems
  • Explore New Solutions in Global Health Priority Areas

Eligibility

Grand Challenges Explorations seeks to involve innovators around the world, including researchers who do not typically work in global health and development; those with innovative ideas in Africa, Asia and other parts of the developing world; people working in the private sector; and young investigators.

Selection Criteria and Grants

The initiative uses a streamlined, straightforward, online grant-making process.  The proposal process makes it easy to apply.  Applications are two pages, and preliminary data about the proposed research are not required.

Grand Challenges Explorations is a unique initiative that supports innovative research of unorthodox ideas. Every aspect of the program, including the carefully designed topics describing critical scientific barriers to progress in global health, the two-page online application, and the rapid review process, are designed to swiftly award funding to scientists who are testing unproven ideas that could lead to breakthroughs in global health.

The Gates Foundation and an independent group of reviewers will select the most innovative proposals, and grants will be awarded within approximately four months from the proposal submission deadline. Initial grants will be $100,000 USD each. Projects showing success will have the opportunity to receive additional funding up to $1 million over two years.

Last date for submission of proposals is November 17, 2011. For more information, visit this link.

Pozivi za projekte – Rising Voices’ latest round of micro-grant funding call for proposals

Rising Voices is accepting project proposals from NGOs or individuals under its latest round of micro-grant funding for digital media outreach projects around the world. Rising Voices will award funding to selected organizations or individuals with a funding of up to US $4,000.

Ideal applicants will present innovative and detailed proposals to teach citizen media techniques to underrepresented communities that are poorly positioned to discover and take advantage of tools like blogging, video-blogging, or podcasting on their own.

This funding opportunity is open to both NGOs and private individuals. However, if an NGO does not have experienced citizen media trainers on their staff, it is extremely important that they seek collaboration with the local blogging community to find the right trainer(s) with the necessary skills. On the other hand, it would also be highly beneficial for individual applicants to partner with an existing NGO from the communities they plan to serve in order to strengthen the project’s impact.

The application deadline is February 4th, 2011. For more information, visit this link.

Grant: biblioteka za osobe sa invaliditetom

Elektronska biblioteka će biti pohranjena na hard disku, pod nazivom “eGranary unit” koja također sadrži sučelje koje imitira izgled i funkcioniranje weba, ali bez potrebe za stvarnom internet povezanoscu. Korisnici će biti osobe s invaliditetom u organizacijama (organizacijama osoba s invaliditetom), donositelji odluka, vladine agencije, individualni zagovaraci, i drugi koji ne mogu lako skinuti podatke s weba. Pročitajte više o GDRL projektu: http://lists.hrea.org/phplist/lt.php?id=Kh5TCwpfCw5QABgGCgMFUk4BBFcE
