The GGP is intended to assist NGOs and local authorities in addressing development needs in a prompt and comprehensive manner in areas such as education, health, water supply, climate change and in other local needs. The GGP scheme was first introduced in 1989, and prioritizes human security for vulnerable and marginalised people within society. Since 1990, the Embassy of Japan in South Africa has supported local authorities and NGOs in South Africa with over 587 projects. In the Japanese Fiscal Year 2014, the Embassy of Japan extended GGP assistance to 14 projects spending over thirteen million Rand (R13, 000,000.00).
