The Open Society Initiative for southern Africa, OSISA , has announced a call for grant applications. OSISA supports innovative programmes working towards open society ideals and which advocate for these ideals in southern Africa (Angola, Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe). The programmes OSISA supports 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 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
The current call closes on 31 March 2016.
