The changing political landscape in our region requires a robust response from civil society. In 2014, OSISA developed a new five-year strategy that speaks to our changing context and has opened its first call to receive grant applications for the 2016 strategy year. We are open to receive applications under this call until the 31 March 2016. OSISA supports innovative programmes working towards open society ideals and which advocate for these ideals in southern Africa. The programmes we support will look beyond immediate symptoms and seek to address structural problems that reproduce poverty, inequality, exclusion and discrimination. For the 2016 strategy year, OSISA invites proposals from civil society, community or state actors from our region for the following programme priority areas: -
- Human Rights, Access to Justice and the Rule of Law
- Democracy and Governance
- Social and Economic Justice
- Natural Resources Governance
- Youth Arts and Culture
- Women’s Rights
Organisations and entities operating and registered in southern Africa need to complete and submit this form and upload annexures where indicated.
