On Friday 1 March 2019, the Department for International Development (DFID) shared details of further organisations to benefit from the Small Charities Challenge Fund (SCCF).
These 13 organisations are being awarded grants of up to £50,000. The funding will help organisations to support the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world.
The projects delivered by the charities and not-for-profit organisations will all work towards supporting the objectives of the Global Goals.
See the list of organisations below for details:
Disability inclusion projects
Act On It (Sierra Leone), Future First Global (Pakistan), Teach2Teach International (Ghana), Education and Skills Development Group (Somaliland), Hay2Timbuktu (Mali), A Partner in Education (Rwanda), Baynards Zambia Trust (Zambia).
The Hunger Project (Uganda).
WasteAid UK (Kenya).
Ending modern day slavery
Rosie May Foundation (Nepal).
More information about each project can be viewed on the SCCF grant holder page.
SCCF is the first DFID fund specifically for small charities and was set up in response to the Civil Society Partnership Review which found that smaller UK charities haven’t always had the opportunity to work with DFID. It is a rolling fund and welcomes applications for projects strengthening the capacity of grassroots organisations by working with the poor, vulnerable and most marginalised, carrying out work in priority countries aimed at achieving the Global Goals.
At present we particularly welcome applications focused on securing better outcomes for widows.
The next review date for applications is Thursday 28 March 2019 at 17:00 (GMT). Learn more in the Small Charities Challenge Fund overview.
