CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR CSOs WITH INTEREST & CAPACITY TO CONDUCT GRASSROOTS GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY CAMPAIGNS

Deadline: 31st May 2022.

Washington, D.C.-based Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) is offering two small grants, each up to $4500, to local civil society partners with interest and capacity to conduct grassroots government accountability campaigns.

Recipients of grants will receive support, training, and mentoring from CIPE and its Nigeria-based partner Connected Development (CODE), together with its associated media program, Follow The Money (FTM).

Amount: $4,500

Donor: The Center for International Private Enterprise

Partner: Connected Development / FollowTheMoney

Overview:

CIPE seeks to support local anti-corruption partners in two countries to conduct high-impact grassroots social media campaigns to combat corruption and increase government accountability. CODE/FTM’s modern advocacy approach is organised around the theme of investigating government funds set aside to benefit the public. The approach builds on traditional grassroots organising and leverages technology, social media, and freedom of information laws. CODE/FTM’s work has shown that even a single activist can swiftly shine a light on government inaction and be amplified by hundreds of supportive followers.

CIPE and CODE are looking for partners with experience or interest in using national freedom of information laws to obtain information about specific projects and then using that information to carry out grassroots awareness-raising campaigns. Applicants should have some background in grassroots mobilisation and social media campaigning.

Grant recipients will receive financial support, virtual and — travel restrictions allowing — in-person training from CODE and CIPE experts as they learn, apply, and execute an FTM grassroots campaign. Grant recipients will also have the opportunity to participate in an end-of-project event to review the results of the completed campaigns.

Scoring criteria:

– Quality of issue area

– Feasibility

– Capacity

– Quality of experience

Deadline: 31st May 2022.

Connected Development is an initiative that is passionate about empowering marginalised communities.

    Just came across your work through a friend. You are doing a great work. We are Hope Raisers Global Foundation an NGO based in Abuja. We are catering for the needs of the children at Durumi IDP Camp, a cause we carry out on a weekly bases where we teach them. Our lectures are based on three area, I. Self esteem ii. Self worth, iii. Self value. Considering the trauma they have gone through, the losses they have incurred and are living in a deplorable environment, we are also interested in female family planning for the up to age females who are living at the IDP Camp an initiative we are currently working on but had to pause due to funding. We are open for support and partnerships. Thank you.
