BUILD – Building a robust and democratic civic space

The project “Building a robust and democratic civic space” (BUILD) aims to protect, promote and raise awareness of EU fundamental rights & values by supporting Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Greece & Cyprus and by increasing their capacity and sustainability.


BUILD is co-funded by the European Union through the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) programme and seeks to contribute to building a robust and democratic civic space by providing financial support to CSOs to implement relevant activities, as well as by offering a comprehensive capacity building programme tailored to the needs of organisations.


During the 36 months of its implementation, running from December 2022 to November 2025, BUILD will launch 2 open calls for funding, making available 2.3 million in grants to civil society and seeking to fund approximately 40 projects in Greece and 10 in Cyprus.


BUILD is coordinated by Bodossaki Foundation (Greece) in partnership with the NGO Support Centre (Cyprus).
