Request a Grant Writer

Grant or cooperative agreement to a USA, Canada, or International nonprofit organization, IHE, public international organization, or for-profit entity to encourage freedom of religious practice and belief. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to eight weeks to complete.

DRL’s goal with this award is to promote international religious freedom and bring the national laws of Kazakhstan in line with international standards by engaging a broad range of government, judicial, and community level actors.

By strengthening the capacity of civil society to educate citizens, raise public awareness of existing concerns, and advocate for authorities to address such concerns, this award will encourage the Government of Kazakhstan to revisit its laws impacting religious freedom, including through any implementing guidance, to bring the country into greater alignment with international standards, and to take concrete steps to amend or repeal restrictive laws that impact both minority and majority religious populations.

Program outcomes could include but are not limited to:

  • Civil society, including local community actors, takes collective action to promote and protect the freedoms of members of all religions, belief and non-believers
  • Community members advocate for the rights of members of all religions, belief and non-believers and for alignment of  policies or practices impacting religious freedom with international standards
  • Civil society-driven processes or mechanisms address the concerns and interests of community members, in particular those members of minority religions and belief communities and non-believers
  • Increased awareness and understanding among government officials and security, law enforcement, and legal actors of the value and importance of human rights, mutual respect, and inclusion for all, regardless of one’s religion, beliefs or non-belief
  • Government officials are increasingly responsive to civil society advocacy to protect freedom of religion, beliefs or non-belief.
