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.

  • Access to comprehensive reproductive health services for socially and economically marginalised and vulnerable people
