About > Eligibility

What is the basic eligibility criteria of AmplifyChange?

Our eligibility criteria are geographical and priority-based. We will mostly support CSOs that are based in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. All applications must respond to one or more of the AmplifyChange Priorities.​ Please read the specific eligibility details for each grant type for more information. 

About > Eligibility

What countries do we work with?

We support CSOs particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

We primarily support CSOs in countries where sexual and reproductive health and rights indicators lag furthest behind, where the status and challenges to sexual and reproductive health and rights are the most challenging.

We respond to the ideas CSOs themselves have on how best to address the priorities of AmplifyChange. 

About > Eligibility

What organisations are eligible?

AmplifyChange will consider applications from civil society actors. We recognise the broad scope of civil society actors and the wide range of organisations and coalitions this refers to. 

Therefore we will support community groups, non-governmental organisations, indigenous groups, charitable organisations, faith based organisations, research institutes, social enterprise groups, public-private partnerships, communications and media groups and professional associations. We welcome applications from civil society groups that maybe working in collaboration with UN agencies, but AmplifyChange does not provide financial support to UN agencies.

For more information on how to define your organisation, please visit out FAQs in our How to Apply​ section.

What organisations are not eligible?

Organisations are not eligible to apply as a result of the following reasons:

  • The lead applicant organisation is registered in a country which is not an AmplifyChange eligible country
  • The lead applicant organisation is a UN agency
  • The lead applicant organisation is a government agency
  • The lead applicant organisation operates under a Memorandum of Understanding with a government agency and/or UN agency

The list above is not exhaustive, therefore please check the Rules and Eligibility section for the grant type you want to apply for for more information.

About > Eligibility

We are not registered in an eligible country but we work with an organisation/s that operate in an eligible country/ies. Can we apply?

No, you can not be the applying organisation, but you can be part of an application on the behalf of a coalition, where the applying organisation or lead applicant is registered in an eligible country.

We welcome collaborative applications where the lead organisation is identified and is registered and working in one of our eligible countries.

​The lead applicant is responsible for submitting the concept note, and any subsequent full application. The lead applicant would also be responsible for coordinating with partners, liaising with AmplifyChange and for the overall management of the grant. Other organisations involved in the coalition, who are not the lead applicant, do not need to be registered within an AmplifyChange eligible country.

Network grants ​are intended to be a primary means of supporting collaboration and consortia approaches, whether South-North or South-South partnerships.
