FAQS WORKS! BURUNDI

QUESTIONS ABOUT ELIGIBILITY TO APPLY

Applications can be made by

- in Baden-Wurttemberg resident, non-profit oriented institutions (such as One World Initiatives, municipalities, associations, migrant self-organizations and religious organizations) that work with a partner organization in Burundi. It is important that the partner organization in Burundi is predominantly staffed by local employees. In individual cases and if Baden-Württemberg cooperation is not possible, Germany-wide sponsoring organizations can also apply.

- in Burundi resident institutions that implement non-profit projects and thus serve the common good.

Unfortunately, projects that have already started cannot be funded.

Only one application per institution is permitted per call for applications.

Both the foundation's mission and the guidelines of the funding lines stipulate that the association's headquarters must be in Baden-Württemberg. Exceptions can only be made on the funding line! Burundi can be made. For other funding opportunities, please see other funding opportunities.

Works on the conveyor line! Burundi can only receive funding for projects in and related to Burundi.

QUESTIONS ABOUT FUNDING

A maximum of €20.000 in funding can be applied for for a project. The personal contribution of the total amount for a project must be at least 15%.

The minimum personal contribution (at least 15%) of the total amount can also be replaced by third-party funds raised.

Engagement Global's bengo funding does not accept public funds as third-party funding. Therefore, SEZ funding cannot be applied for in connection with a bengo project.

If personnel from Germany or the German sponsor have to be sent, a detailed explanation must be given as to why this is necessary to carry out the project. This includes information about the person, qualifications and duration of the posting. To what extent is the person being posted associated with a local person? To what extent are tasks handed over?

Expenses on the part of local staff who are directly involved in project implementation should be adjusted to the respective monthly average wages of the relevant professional group (local appropriateness of payment). The tasks of the co-financed staff must be described.

The SEZ manages several funding lines.
There are currently two funding lines available for educational projects at home and development cooperation projects abroad: funding from state funds (bacts!) and funding from SEZ funds.

QUESTIONS ABOUT PROJECT APPROVAL

The SEZ convenes an award committee to decide on the allocation of funding.

QUESTIONS ABOUT EFFECT ORIENTATION

QUESTIONS ABOUT PROOF OF USE

The funding follows the principle of financing shortfalls. This means that the gap between the project expenses and the project income/own funds is promoted.

If the project becomes cheaper, there will be less demand. Accordingly, this will be “reduced” from the funding and must be repaid by the project sponsor with the billing.

If there have been previous projects that were funded by the state, the SEZ must have proof of use for these (unless the planned project duration has not yet expired or the specified reporting deadline has not yet been reached), otherwise the Project sponsor not eligible to apply.

The receipts must contain the information and attachments customary in business transactions, the issue receipts in particular the payment recipient, the reason and date of the payment, proof of payment and, in the case of items, the intended use. In the case of non-cash payouts, it is not necessary to state the date of payment and provide proof of payment if the payout can be proven using the accounting records. In addition, the documents must contain a clear allocation feature to the project (e.g. project number).

Fee or work contracts must be concluded in writing. The contract must regulate: period of activity, specific description of services, amount of the fee, accounting, tax recording and declaration obligations. Fee payments to paid (full-time) employees or members of the funding recipient are generally not eligible for funding. The contracts must be attached to the proof of use.
