OFID – The OPEC Fund for International Development
Technical Assistance Grant Operations
Since OFID's inception, technical assistance operations have constituted its core grants activities. Such grants are extended to national and regional development projects that aim at sustainable development and poverty reduction, and that serve the poorest segments of society, particularly those in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Women and children, especially, are accorded high priority.
Technical assistance grants are awarded largely on the basis of the type of project and its expected outcomes, the number of beneficiaries and the recipient country’s socio-economic situation. As of December 2012, OFID had provided some US$548.2m in outright grants across all programs, working with UN agencies and a host of international and national NGOs, among many other partners, to meet the needs of vulnerable populations.
Supported Projects and Programs
Establishing a Beles Agro-industrial Processing Plant
Total Cost: US$
Grant administrator: OPEC Fund for International Development
The project aims at establishing a processing plant to manufacture a stable supply of marketable Beles-based products. The industrial transformation and packaging of fruits and pads into various high-quality food commodities will not only increase the shelf life but also increase the marketability both domestic and international markets. The plant will contain modern fruit processing technology and its staff will be sufficiently trained to operate and maintain the plant and handle the food according to good manufacturing practices.
