Applications are now open for the Partnership Grant Program to support established organisations from sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to build and strengthen civil society movements advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
The Partnership grant is a new instrument (replacing the Strategic grant). This funding responds to the need expressed by grantees to extend the reach of AmplifyChange and strengthen solidarity and linkages between civil society groups working on the same subject in the same region. This funding will better embed support and advocacy within local settings.
The purpose of Partnership grant funding is to support established organisations from sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to build and strengthen civil society movements advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
Partnership grants help strengthen the capacity of a growing constellation of organisations in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to be dynamic regional and global leaders in advocating for SRHR to support more sustainable and resilient local responses. This will encompass the facility to on-grant to smaller local groups to foster their capacity.
Partnership grant funding will enable organisations to provide grants, and organisational support, to smaller grassroots civil society organisations within their movement advocating for SRHR. Partnership grantees can also provide knowledge for advocacy support to smaller grassroots civil society organisations by enhancing the recognition, connections and contributions to the SRHR evidence-base by southern civil society organisations.
Building on our experience since 2014, AmplifyChange will work closely with those organisations holding partnership funding as they develop their on-granting, organisational strengthening and knowledge for advocacy approaches.
AmplifyChange aims to develop long-term partnerships with organisations holding partnership funding, the parameters of which will be decided together with successful applicants.
Partnership grants will initially be between £200,000 to £1,500,000 for up to 3 years (with the potential to extend the grants up to 5 years – and up to £2,500,000 – depending on grant performance and the availability of AmplifyChange funding). The minimum time period Partnership grant applicants can apply for is 2 years.
Please see the specific eligibility criteria listed in the sections below.
