research for volunteer in cape verde

Hi everyone,

I am posting this on behalf of a friend ... please let me know (comment) if you have any insight! Thanks!


I am doing some research for a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cape Verde. She is looking for grant opportunities for several projects she is working on. If anyone can think of NGO's that you have dealt with that might give small grants to the following areas please let me know.

1) A training program in hydroponic horticultural production

2) Microcredit for women to do work at home(Sewing, goat raising, veg. production)

3) Solar/wind power to pump water to the fields

4) A sewing machine training program for women

If you can be of any help I would really appreciate it. Thanks for your help.

Also, the US embassy usually has a small projects funds, perhaps EU embassies do as well. Best bets are probably the Scandinavians, Dutch, and Belgians.

Good luck!
Several months late, but CHF: Currently they don't have a project up in Cape Verde but if she has a proposal set up with local NGOs then perhaps CHF can have some arrangement or assistance.
