Description:A. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Embassy Nouakchott Program and Grants Office (PGO) of the U.S. Department of State announces a Request for Statements of Interest (RSOI) from organizations interested in applying for funding for program proposals that promote Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. PGO invites organizations interested in potential funding to submit Statement of Interest (SOI) applications outlining program concepts that reflect this goal. Please carefully follow all instructions below. The submission of a SOI is the first step in a two-part process. Applicants must first submit a SOI, which is a concise, 1-3-page concept note designed to clearly communicate a program idea and its objectives before the development of a full proposal application. The purpose of the SOI process is to allow applicants the opportunity to submit program ideas for PGO to evaluate prior to requiring the development of full proposal applications. Upon review of eligible SOIs, PGO will invite selected applicants to expand their ideas into full proposal applications. Full proposals will go through a second merit review before final funding decision are made.Program Objectives: 1. Implement innovative efforts to educate vulnerable Mauritanians, civil society actors, and the public on anti-slavery, anti-trafficking, anti-discrimination, and gender-based violence (GBV) legislations.2. Implement activities to promote the rights of children victims of mendicity, this includes raising awareness on existing laws and collecting data to inform USG and GIRM’s programming.
