Deadline: 1 July 2019

Friends of Liberia (FOL) is accepting applications for small grants of up to $3000 supporting programs in Education, Psycho-Social Support System Rehabilitation and Entrepreneurship.

Programs

Organizations operating in Liberia and involved in any of the programs listed below may apply:

  • Education
    • General education by schools
      • Developing literacy skills in children
      • Training of teachers
      • Education of girls
    • Health education
      • Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) programs for schools including structural facilities for sanitation purposes
      • Training of teachers in implementing health education curriculum
      • Educating communities about basic health and hygiene practices. Communities with school health education programs will be favored.
      • Projects focusing on educational and support for medical staff (doctors, midwives, nurses, etc.).
      • Programs educating maternity patients about hygiene and health
  • Psycho-Social Support System Rehabilitation
    • Orphans (children and youth)
      • Programs that provide nurturing environments with education, shelter, food, etc. for orphans with plans for sustainability and self- independence for children and youth.
      • Programs should go beyond immediate or short-term counseling. Support should be long-term and enable orphans to become independent and productive members of society.
    • Ebola-Related
      • Programs supporting individuals that are stigmatized as a result of contracting the Ebola virus. Goals of programs should be to help people rebuild their lives, but nature of support or intervention will be evaluated on case- by-case basis for the applications.
      • Communities may include geographic locations and sites that were devastatingly impacted by the outbreak, as well as sectors, such as medical staff and healthcare practitioners.
  • Entrepreneurship (Micro-financing)
    • Individuals
      • Programs supporting micro-financing projects for individuals affected by Ebola (survivors, orphans, families of victims, market/sellers impacted by limited access to goods, etc.). Programs may have a two-pronged approach with both economic/micro-financing and psycho-social support benefits.
    • Organizations
      • Established, sustainable micro-financing groups that need additional seed money to extend opportunities to more people.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Only nonprofit organizations working independently of the government of Liberia are eligible to apply.
  • The organization must be officially registered by the Liberian government as a not-for-profit organization, or be partnered with such.
  • Preference will be given to organizations based in Liberia.
  • An organization may submit no more than one grant application per year.
  • FOL will not award a grant that is the exclusive source of support for the program or project proposed.
  • FOL generally will not accept a grant application based upon a program or project for which a previous grant was awarded. (FOL, at its initiative, may encourage a grantee to apply for a continuation grant.)
