Micro Intervention Programme (MIP)
What is a Micro Intervention Programme?
The micro intervention programme (MIP) is a programme funded by the Belgian Development Cooperation. Its aim is to promote sustainable human, social, cultural and economic development through the strengthening of local communities and civil society. It specifically targets least-favoured and vulnerable groups in society.
The selection of the projects is carried out by a committee made up of the Consulate-General of Belgium in Jerusalem and the Belgian Development Agency (BTC). BTC is responsible for both monitoring and implementing the projects.
At least half of all projects will address issues of women empowerment. Priority will also be given to projects in isolated areas.
Beneficiaries will only have a minimal administrative structure and projects will have a duration of not more than one year.
The following are the areas of interest:
- vulnerable and marginalized groups
- Income generating projects
- gender equality-oriented projects
- education sector and/or local socio-economic development
- Proposals with focused results and a transparent budget
- Deliver working capacity to existing socio-economic structures
Negative selection criteria will be:
- Having received other Belgian funds over the last years
- Creation of additional administrative structures and project staff salaries (these costs will have to be borne by the benefiting organization).
- Payment of recurrent office costs (electricity, gas)
- Purchase of computers, photo and film camera’s, overhead projectors, unless especially justified for the project.
