The eligibility criteria are:

  • The project must be implemented in sub-Saharan Africa and/or South Asia 
  • The applicant organisation must have a bank account 
  • The average annual budget of the lead applicant organisation over 3 years must be at least double the total value of the grant.

Your project must respond to one or more of the AmplifyChange priorities which are: 

  • Addressing Gender-based violence, including sexual violence and female genital mutilation, and ending child, early and forced marriage
  • Addressing the causes of unsafe abortion, including criminalisation of abortion 
  • Challenging stigma, discrimination, attitudes and laws that undermine human rights, including on grounds of gender identity or sexual orientation, particularly LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex) individuals
  • Increasing Access to comprehensive reproductive health services for socially and economically marginalised and vulnerable people
  • Improving sexual health of young people and girls, including through comprehensive sexuality education and ending child, early and forced marriage and menstrual hygiene management

Therefore, we will support: 

  • community groups
  • non-governmental organisations
  • indigenous groups
  • charitable organisations
  • faith-based organisations  
  • research institutes
  • social enterprise groups
