Please follow all instructions below.Priority Region: Zimbabwe (all 10 provinces)Program Objectives:The Ambassador's Special Self-Help (SSH) Program through the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) awards grants to registered non-governmental, non-profit, community-based organizations to implement short-term (12-month), small-scale (between $15,000 and $20,000) development projects that include significant community involvement.Priority consideration is given to income generating projects with a health component that improve basic economic or social conditions at the village level.

All submissions are reviewed in a competitive and transparent manner. However, given the limited funding available through the SSH Program, we can only fund a small number of projects each year. BACKGROUND Started in 1964 in Togo, the SSH Program spread across Africa as a grassroots program that allows U.S. embassies to respond quickly to local requests for small, community-based development projects that have an immediate impact. In 1980, the Ambassador's Special Self-Help Program started in Zimbabwe. SPECIFIC PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONSThe SSH Program in Zimbabwe has several funding sources, each with a specific mandate.
