Through our single-entry portal Wehubit, your Digital for Development (D4D) initiatives can gain access to financing grants, loans & equities.

3 blocs

GRANTS – are accessible to non-profit organisations established in one of the 14 partner countries of the Belgian bilateral cooperation: Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Palestine, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania or Uganda. The grant agreement is signed with Enabel.

LOANS & EQUITIES – are accessible to private companies. The contract is signed with BIO.

The selection is done through calls for proposals which follow a strict and transparent procedure. Calls for proposals are launched on a regular basis. Each call for proposals has two rounds of evaluation. You can only apply during the open period of the call for proposals. The 2nd round is only accessible to the applications successful during the 1st round. 





In order to participate to a call for proposals, please download its guidelines and carefully read all the information surrounding the process. These contain all the necessary information and instructions to be followed for submitting your project.
