International Development Grant Program
« on: June 15, 2018, 08:38:09 AM »

International Development Grant Program

The International Development Grant Program is an outreach effort of the Imperial Diplomatic Corps to foster development, decrease poverty and hunger, and increase the standard of living across Mundus. Through these endeavours it is the hope of the IDC to not only provide the means to improve the standard of living in some of the most challenging issues facing economically challenged nations, but also to build friendship and partnership through finding solutions together. In coordination with Rokkenjiman governmental experts and corporate partners an International Development Grant is paired with advice to less developed nations to meet the target goals of the aid matter at hand. The International Development Grant Program disperses funds to work towards the following target goals:

I.     Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger
II.    Achieve Universal Primary Education
III.   Promote Gender Equality
IV.    Reduce Child Mortality
V.     Improve Maternal Health
VI.   Combat Disease
VII.  Ensure Environmental Sustainability

To apply for assistance from the International Development Grant Program, please complete the following form:

[b]Applicant Nation:[/b]
[b]Projects Seeking Funding:[/b]
[b]Estimated Amount Needed:[/b]
[b]Target Dates For Completion:[/b]
[b]Any Relevant Details To Be Taken Into Consideration:[/b]

A total of five grants of र1.081bn ($2bn) shall be provided for each fiscal year. In situations where these grants have been exhausted but a need remains the First Empire shall work to provide a low-interest loan to ensure that assistance may still be provided in the most pressing of cases while not burdening nations already in distress with debts they may never pay off.

In friendship;

Denial Of Request

The First Empire does not recognize a nation by the name of the "Free Theocracy of Kaitaine". As stated by the Rt. Hon. Koizumi the First Empire cannot accept a terrorist enterprise gaining the trappings of a state and recognizes the sovereign borders of the Soviet Republic of Kaitaine, as well as recognizing the Soviet Republic as the legitimate government of Kaitaine. This application is thus classified as illegitimate and as such is denied.

Approval Of Request

Following a review of the request made by the Free Nations of Sirinisi I hereby announce that the Imperial Treasury has approved disbursement of the International Development Grant for the full amount requested. Furthermore, on behalf of Her Imperial Majesty, I look forward to the opportunity for our nations to deepen their bonds beyond this initial endeavour. The Imperial Diplomatic Corps will coordinate efforts with your Government on this matter, as well as following up with a meeting between our Governments to discuss future developments in our diplomatic relations.

A review continues to progress in regards to the application made by the Soviet Republic of Kaitaine. I will ensure that you are promptly updated once this Review has concluded. It is certainly my hopes that we may play a role in bringing critical health care to those who presently lack such facilities in their local communities.

Thank you for your understanding as this process goes forward.

Applicant Nation:Empire of Tamora (Kingdom of Attica)

Projects Seeking Funding: Low interest (and high grace period) for micro and small textile businesses owned or operated by women and currently experiencing financial difficulties.   

Estimated Amount Needed:10,000,000 USD

Target Dates For Completion: September 2018 (disbursement of the entire amount to our borrowers).

Any Relevant Details To Be Taken Into Consideration:

The Empire of Tamora has a GDP of capita of approx 19% of that of the Fist Empire of Rokkenjima. Our borrowers do business in small towns where the GDP per capita is lower than the Tamoran average and have been severely affected by the looming recession among other things. Should our request be accepted our funds will go micro and small textile businesses (with an annual  turnover of less than 4 million USD) that are owned or operated by women, a vulnerable group in Tamora.
We believe our application meets your criteria of promoting gender equality as well as of eradication of extreme poverty (given the low capita GDP of Tamora and low wages average wages compared to Rokkenjima).
Furthermore, we would like to stress what we are small, private bank, with no government contracts of any kind and we are yearly audited by one of the largest Heyra audit companies in the field.
We look forward to your reply,
Rita Sargsyan
CEO of CEC Bank

Denial Of Request

Following a review of the request presented by Welt Young it is my unfortunate position to relay the denial of your request. Recognizing the position of the Grand Maester and her concern regarding the future of children raised under the roof of a corporation such a dispersal of aid would not be aligned with the values nor the principles of the First Empire.

Furthermore, as the Heyran Republic possesses a GDP per capita of $82.9k, it is felt by the Imperial Diplomatic Corps that the aid offered through this Program would be better spent on nations which are not as fortunate as the Heyran Republic. Perhaps Welt Young may petition the Republic for assistance in the funding of this initiative?

Salutations Mr Cole,

Welt Young feel totally distraught at your answer, understanding it well but also seeing mislead informations in it. The Welt Young Organization is an organization recently having adopted 2 500 children, from the age of 5 to 0 from various countries throughout the Mundus which were under the great pressure of war and poverty. If those were adopted, it is to help them and allow them a brighter future, certainly not to have them under pressure of any corporation, as Welt Young is a 100% Humanitarian Organization and does not have any workforce not being in education or child assistance. In fact, our organization makes no revenues, therefore why we asked for the First Empire Foreign Affairs Ministry’s help.

We know the recent development of IVF for instance in Heyra that have been pushed, but please remain certain that we are a well-differentiated entity from such, and we certainly do not abide our child to work for any corporation, such act would be in addition not only against Heyran Laws, but totally immoral.

In addition, our Government does not subsidies such Humanitarian programs, which is let to open critics, however we are actively seeking subsidies for allowing to give those 2 500 child a future. Welt Young shall even be ready to open its infrastructures and programs to some inspectors from your Administration if you were to refuse my letter in favour of the reconsideration of your present decision.

We hope you will reconsider your decision,
Our most humble regards,
- Welt Young Administration Board

Applicant Nation: Empire of Tamora

Projects Seeking Funding: expansion of our mission in Zimalia

Estimated Amount Needed:200,000,000 USD

Target Dates For Completion: October 2019

Any Relevant Details To Be Taken Into Consideration:

As-salamu alaykum,

I write to you on behalf of the Manist Association of Zimalia (MAZ) which I am honored to represent. We understand a new reset of relations is taking place between our two empires and since our press has said that trust is at the center of our new relations, we have decided to seek your help. While we are generally reluctant to ask outsiders for help the needs of our mission in Zimalia are great and we want to help as many people as possible as soon as possible. We understand you have a set a of target goals you aim with your program so please allow me to address each of them:

I.     Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger: MAZ is actively involved in eradicating poverty in Zimalia by bringing aid but also improving farming in rural areas.
II.    Achieve Universal Primary Education: one of our first goals was to build schools in rural areas, while the schools are owned and operated by us we charge nothing for the education they provide and do evry effort possible to parents to allow their children to attend school.
III.   Promote Gender Equality: we aim to create an environment where women are free to pursue their calling as mothers. We, as followers of the Prophet Mani, fight against the objectification of women so persistent in other countries. We have been doing this not for decades but over one thousand years.
IV.    Reduce Child Mortality: MAZ has being buying the expensive but very effective Watly machines from East Moreland which bring clear water, energy and WIFI to remote areas. Furthermore, MAZ works with the Tamoran embassy in Zimalia to provide medical for serious cases (free of charge, of course). As you can see, in order to help the people there, we work with all parties willing to help us, that includes a company from East Moreland and we will work with others should the need arise.
V.     Improve Maternal Health: we have touched on above some of the issues like providing access to clear water and providing food in order to eliminate hunger but we have also provided aid aimed at addressing the specific nutritional needs of pregnant mothers. Furthermore, our religion rejects alcohol, smoking, drugs and through conversion to our faith we see a reduction in those addictions.
VI.   Combat Disease: as state above, we have provided access to clean water but also aid in the form of medicine.
VII.  Ensure Environmental Sustainability: the farming improvements we introduced in rural villages, while we believe have helped greatly, are not what can be described as industrial farming which is responsible for loss of biodiversity and other negative aspects.

We have said a lot about what we have done in Zimalia but not what we aim to do should you generously accept to provide us the funds. That is because we aim to do more of the same in the hope of improving the lives of many more Zimalians. While we pray that you will accept our application, please do not feel constrained to accept for fear that our work in there would stop should you reject our application. We will continue to help Zimalia regardless but the rate to which we can help would be at a much slower rate without your support. We hope you will approve our application only if you're 100% committed to our work.

May God reward you,
Imam Ervad Farshid
Spokesperson of MAZ (Manist Association of Zimalia)

Approval Of Request

Following a review of the request presented by the Soviet Republic of Kaitaine I hereby announce that the Imperial Treasury has approved disbursement of the International Development Grants for the full amounts requested. With the permission of the Soviet Government the Imperial Government would be interested in opening dialogue to see if there is any further assistance beyond financial means in which it may be of assistance in seeing this project completed in a swift and efficient manner.

If you are interested in these further measures of cooperation I invite you to contact me directly so we may see them put into effect.
