Legal Aid Clinics are intended to provide legal relief easily accessible to the indigent and backward sections of our society. They are almost on the lines of primary health centres where a doctor and other auxiliary medical staff provide basic health care to the people situated in village areas affected with poverty and social squalor. Like the doctors rendering health services to the people of the locality in the primary health centre, a lawyer manning the legal aid clinic provides legal services to the people.  The thrust is on the basic legal services like legal advice and assisting in drafting of notices, replies, applications, petitions etc.  The lawyer manning the legal aid clinic will also attempt to resolve the disputes of the people in the locality, preventing the disputes from maturing into litigation.  This provides the lawyer in the legal aid clinic an opportunity to understand the difficulties faced by people in the distant villages’ for access to justice.  Legal aid clinics have to be manned by para-legal volunteers selected by the Legal Services Authorities and lawyers with a sense of commitment, sensibility and sensitiveness to the problems of common people. Legal aid clinic is one of the thrust areas envisioned in the NALSA’s Quinquennial vision & strategy document.  NALSA plans to set up legal aid clinics in all villages.
The legal aid clinics established by the Legal Services Authorities shall be located at a place where the people in the locality can easily access.  A room within the office building of the local body institutions like village panchayat shall be ideal.
The objective of the Scheme is to provide legal services to the poor, marginalised and weaker sections of the society as categorised in Section 12  the Legal Services Authorities Act 1987 (Central Act), especially to the people living in far away places including the places with geographical barriers, away from the seats of justice and the offices of the legal services institutions [‘legal services institutions’ means the Taluk/Sub-divisional/Mandal Legal Services Committees, District Legal Services Authorities, High Court Legal Services Committees, State Legal Services Authorities and Supreme Court Legal Services Committee established under the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987]. The aim of the Scheme is to provide inexpensive local machinery for rendering legal services of basic nature like legal advice, drafting of petitions, notices, replies, applications and other documents of legal importance and also for resolving the disputes of the local people by making the parties to see reason and thereby preventing the disputes reaching courts.  In cases where legal services of a higher level are required the matter can be referred to the legal services institutions established under the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987.
The eligibility criteria for NGOs to participate in the Project are:
1. A legal entity. The NGO should be a registered body under applicable State Law. Registration should be for at least 3 years. The organization should have the organizational mandate to participate in free legal aid promotion activities.

Since 2008, the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) has been financing climate and biodiversity projects in developing and newly industrialising countries, as well as in countries in transition. In the early years of the programme, its financial resources came from the proceeds of auctioning allowances under the emissions trading scheme. To ensure financial continuity, further funds were made available through the Special Energy and Climate Fund. Both funding mechanisms are now part of the Federal Environment Ministry’s regular budget.
The IKI is a key element of Germany’s climate financing and the funding commitments in the framework of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Initiative places clear emphasis on climate change mitigation, adaption to the impacts of climate change and the protection of biological diversity. These efforts provide various co-benefits, particularly the improvement of living conditions in partner countries.

Guidelines and Standard Indicators
Project application is open to applicants worldwide through an annual call for proposals. This two-stage procedure is designed to ensure that funding is awarded to ambitious projects with the most suitable implementing organisations. The following points apply in particular to BMUB-funded projects:
Designing an international climate finance architecture:
The IKI supports mechanisms for mobilising additional funding, private investments in particular, as well as sustainable business models for climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation measures.
Innovation and the multiplier effect:
IKI projects should follow technologically, environmentally, methodologically or institutionally ambitious and replicable approaches that are transferrable and that achieve results beyond individual projects.
Transparency and Coherence:
The IKI supports its partner countries in making measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) contributions to climate change mitigation. BMU also participates in the international debate on MRV. On the one hand, it is continuously improving its own monitoring approach. The planning and monitoring of IKI projects follows the impact logic of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). On the other hand, the IKI also focuses on strengthening transparency and governance structures in international climate financing.
Learning from Experience:
Stakeholders active in the IKI use platforms such as workshops or online networks to exchange experiences and know-how and learn from one another. An independent evaluation of individual projects and the entire programme provide important insights for continuously improving the IKI.
Standard Indicators:
As from 2015, all new projects are to use not only the project-specific indicators, but also the overarching standard indicators that summarise the central impacts of the IKI funding programme. Each project reports on all standard indicators to which it has made a significant contribution.
IKI's standard indicators are:
Reduction indicator: Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increase in carbon storage (as tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent) in the project/programme area.
Adaptation indicator: Number of people the project directly assists with adaptation to climate change impacts or ecosystem conservation.
Ecosystem indicator: Ecosystem area (in hectares) that is improved or protected by the project’s activities.
Policy indicator: Number of new or improved policy frameworks for managing climate change and/or conserving biodiversity.
Institution indicator: Number of new or improved institutionalised structures or processes for managing climate change and/or conserving biodiversity.
Methods indicator: Number of new or improved methodological tools for managing climate change and conserving biodiversity.

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the top 10 causes of death in children: over 140 000 children die each year due to this largely curable disease. Whilst an estimated 1 million children need TB treatment each year, only 359 000 cases of TB in children were reported in 2014. Until now, no child-friendly TB medicines in the right doses and formulations were available. Children who did receive treatment often received inappropriate medicines, including split or crushed adult tablets. The lack of appropriate diagnostic and treatment options highlights – and reinforces – the neglect of children with TB.
From 2012 to 2016, UNITAID has funded the STEP-TB project. Through this project, implementing partners TB Alliance and WHO led the development of appropriately formulated TB medicines in the right doses for children and improved the understanding of the paediatric TB market. The launch of the first new child-friendly formulations was announced in December 2015, as a direct result of this project. These fixed-dose combinations (FDC) of the three most commonly used drugs to treat drug-sensitive TB (rifampicin, isoniazid, and pyrazinamide) are dissolvable and flavoured, offer simpler treatment, and facilitate correct dosing, improving adherence and child survival.
In the absence of better, child-friendly TB diagnostics on the short-term horizon, innovative strategies are required to enable the scale-up of the new paediatric treatment options, reaching more children to shape and grow a more sustainable market.
Under this call, UNITAID is soliciting proposals to address market-specific challenges, with a view to improving the health of this market on the following dimensions:
  • Demand and adoption: i.e., countries, programmes, providers, and end users rapidly introduce and adopt the most cost-effective products within their local context; and
  • Delivery: i.e., supply chain systems (including quantification, procurement, storage, and distribution) function effectively to ensure that products reach end users in a reliable and timely way.
Specific examples of work that may be supported could include:
  • Facilitate adoption of new medicines to displace current suboptimal treatment
Work to incorporate the new formulations into countries’ TB strategies, supply planning, forecasting and treatment protocols; accelerate regulatory approval and registration of new products in-country, where required.
  • Expand access to better TB medicines to reach more children in need
Support integrated delivery approaches to reach more children with TB, for example by: leveraging active case-finding strategies; developing and piloting innovative methods of demand generation and integration of TB into other health care services for children, including private sector; developing innovative approaches or strategies to improve detection or reporting of TB in children (including application of diagnostic tools and strategies in innovative ways), with a focus on approaches that could be implemented within the next two years.
UNITAID is focused on investing in areas that generate the greatest impact and Value for Money. Applicants are required to clearly outline the logic of their proposal. This includes defining specific objectives for the proposal. Furthermore, how these objectives translate into a set of project activities, which support the generation of tangible, measurable outputs and outcomes which are relevant to the Call for Proposals. The proposal must also make the case for how these outputs and outcomes can contribute to wider impact.
UNITAID recognizes the efforts of partners in this area, as well as the need for further support of this fragile market. Proposals should demonstrate how work to create and stabilize the market for better paediatric TB treatment would be coordinated with (and complementary to) partners’ efforts.
Finally, applicants should be clear about the underlying assumptions made in their proposed approach, and should highlight any major risks or other factors that may affect the delivery of results.

Grants from the Maypole Fund have contributed to a wide range of activities. So far, Maypole money has helped with printing leaflets, mounting exhibitions and making videos.

Please read these guidelines carefully before applying for a grant.
Your application must be for a project which falls within our AIM/S and fulfil one or more of our CRITERIA. Much as we would wish to support all worthwhile women’s projects, our funds and constitution do not permit this. As we receive more applications than we have money to fund, we are especially looking for imaginative, non-violent and politically expressive projects. We welcome applications from women only for projects and activities that meet the following aims of The Maypole Fund:
  • anti-militarism;
  • action against the arms trade;
  • action against nuclear weapons and weapons systems;
  • creating a culture of peace and the prevention of conflict and war;
  • action to support disarmament policies, processes and related initiatives.
We have chosen the following CRITERIA to help us prioritise and decide between applications
  • Young women’s groups/individuals and lesbian groups/individuals;
  • Activities or projects not yet started;
  • Women who do not have access to other sources of funding or whose projects find it difficult to attract funding from elsewhere;
  • Imaginative/creative activities;
  • Individual and small women’s groups over larger established women’s groups,
PLEASE NOTE: We do not make contributions to general funding, and we do not give grants for individual women living in the global North to attend courses/conferences or to travel for personal interest. We only fund women.
Deadlines for funding applications are: 31 January and 30 June of each year. Out of about 200 received applications for each session, we can fund on average about 10-12.

Please note:
  1. We only contact successful applicants.
  2. If you do not hear from us within 2 months of these dates, your application has been unsuccessful.
If you are awarded a grant, the Maypole Fund expects that you will spend it on the agreed activity, and that within the following six months you will write us a short report showing what you have achieved with the money, and attaching receipts for all expenditure.
