Good Governance Initiative Fund

The Good Governance Initiative Fund (GGIF) is a two-phased grant mechanism which will result in the increased capacity of traditionally underserved and underrepresented Kazakh and Tajik CSOs outside of the capital cities to strategically plan, coordinate, and execute complex campaigns aimed at reforming the institutionalized delivery of services, public policy and legislation. The ultimate goal of the project is to promote institutionalized governance reforms which contribute to improved service delivery, public policy, legislation, or regulations. The project was launched in October 2014 and is expected to end in September 2018.

Grantees of the project are non-governmental organizations in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan working in close collaboration with the representatives of government agencies to improve the quality of public services, simplify access to services, and protect the rights of vulnerable groups, including people with disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDS, children and adolescents, children left without parental care, as well as farmers and members of the broader community.

The project currently supports the following initiatives:

- Development of a tool to improve Kazakhstan’s compliance with international human rights recommendations;

- Development of a model for integrated special social services for vulnerable populations;

- Development of an online diagnosis tool for families to identify at-risk behavior among teenagers;

- Increased accessibility of public services for people with disabilities in remote regions;

- Identification and popularization of latent public services;

- Creation of a multifunctional internet portal, www.agrobiz.kz, connecting farmers, buyers, and government agencies;

- Modification of public spaces for increased accessibility of people with disabilities and other low-mobility groups;

- Delivery of targeted mentorship and consulting for organizations which protect the rights of people with disabilities;

- HIV/AIDS reduction through improved service and support networks for intravenous drug users and people living with HIV.
