We invite applications for grants from any individual or organization in thirteen eligible southern African countries, for work that addresses discrimination against lesbian women or transgender people. To be eligible for a grant you must be:
- A lesbian woman or a transgender person, or an organization that is led by lesbian women or transgender people; or
- A general LGBTI organization that addresses discrimination against transgender people or lesbian women.
Grant applications will be accepted for work up to the end of September 2016. The thirteen eligible countries from which grant applications will be accepted are Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Grant allocations will be made in a two-step process. The first step will be to submit a concept proposal.
All concept proposals will be assessed by a panel of peers of grant applicants. The peer reviewers will recommend the concept proposals that will be taken to the second stage of the grant making process. In the second stage, the recommended applicants will be invited to submit full grant proposals. The board of trustees of the Other Foundation will make final decisions about grant allocations.
The Foundation has ZAR 1.5 million for grant allocations in this round of grant making.
The closing date for submission of grant concept proposals is Wednesday, 11 November 2015.
