Applications Open for AmplifyChange Network Grants: Inviting CSOs from sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia

Deadline: 4 April 2017

AmplifyChange is currently seeking proposals for its Network grants from Southern-based organisations capable of supporting multiple small-to-medium sized civil society organisations to contribute to the development of stronger, more inclusive movements for SRHR.

After almost two years of grant-making, AmplifyChange is now providing direct support to over 250 small-to-medium sized civil society organisations through its Opportunity and Strengthening Grants. These grants aim to fuel the growth of a new generation of organisations and advocacy leaders, including youth-led, gender-rights groups, legal and health activists thereby contributing to the creation of more resilient, broad-based movements for SRHR based in the Global South.

Thematic Areas

  • Removing barriers to safe abortion, including criminalisation of abortion and lack of availability of and access to comprehensive abortion care services
  • Gender-based violence, including sexual violence and female genital mutilation, and ending child, early and forced marriage
  • Access to comprehensive reproductive health services for socially and economically marginalised and vulnerable people
  • Sexual health of young people and girls, including through comprehensive sexuality education and ending child, early and forced marriage and menstrual hygiene management
