MARK Lancaster MP is encouraging charities and not-for-profit groups in Milton Keynes to bid for money from a £4m fund to support efforts to reduce global poverty.
The Global Poverty Action Fund's Community Partnership Window allows small, UK-based organisations to put forward innovative ideas in pursuit of the Millennium Development Goals to help the poorest people around the world.
Mark was the Parliamentary Private Secretary for the Secretary of State for International Development for several years and so this is a subject he has particular interest in.
The bidding process has now opened and closes on 9 July 2013.
"I know there are large numbers of individuals and organisations in Milton Keynes who spend a lot of time and effort supporting those most in need around the world, having visited many myself. The Community Partnership Window of the Global Poverty Action Fund allows them to put forward their ideas to help people the poorest parts of the globe with successful projects receiving funding to turn their vision into reality."
