OSISA invites grant applications for 2016

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Deadline: Thursday, March 31st. 2016
The changing political landscape in our region requires a robust response from civil society. In 2014, OSISA developed a new five-year strategy that speaks to our changing context and has opened its first call to receive grant applications for the 2016 strategy year. We are open to receive applications under this call until the 31 March 2016.

OSISA supports innovative programmes working towards open society ideals and which advocate for these ideals in southern Africa. The programmes we support will look beyond immediate symptoms and seek to address structural problems that reproduce poverty, inequality, exclusion and discrimination.

For the 2016 strategy year, OSISA invites proposals from civil society, community or state actors from our region for the following programme priority areas:

– Human Rights, Access to Justice and the Rule of Law
– Democracy and Governance
– Social and Economic Justice
– Natural Resources Governance
– Youth Arts and Culture
– Women’s Rights

To apply, organisations and entities operating and registered in southern Africa need to complete and submit the OSISA 2016 Grant Application Form (with annexures) using only one of the following channels:

In our grant making, OSISA recognises that there are some emerging and other leading civil society groups and formations such as community-based organisations and social movements operating in our region, which are not formally registered entities. We are willing to consider concept proposals from such unregistered and informal groups and formations that, if approved, may then be further developed into fully-fledged grant proposals for consideration. Non-registered groups and formations may submit OSISA 2016 Concept Proposal Forms for consideration by OSISA using only one of the following channels:
