Opportunity grantee, Kenya
We will consider applications from civil society organisations working in all countries that are eligible for the Opportunity grant. (See map and list below). If you can't see if a country is highlighted in the map, please check the list for confirmation.
Please note: we only accept applications in English and French.
We will accept applications from organisations that are not registered or have a bank account because we recognise that some organisations are still new and in some contexts there are security risks associated with registration. But please note that unregistered organisations that have applications successfully recommended for funding will still need to fulfil certain requirements to undergo due diligence and financial assessments. One requirement will be to obtain a letter of recommendation from a known AmplifyChange partner. We would encourage unregistered groups who apply for an AmplifyChange opportunity grant to start the registration process as soon as possible during the application stage.
Civil society organisations (CSOs) located in one of our eligible countries are welcome to apply.
CSOs can include:
For more information on how to describe an organisation, please refer to our organisation definitions - it is the last question in the How to Apply - FAQ section.
Yes! We are looking to support grassroots groups that find it difficult to access funding, and understand that it may not have been possible for you to register due to security concerns in your context. Your application will still be considered.
Please note that unregistered groups whose application is recommended for funding will need to fulfil certain requirements to undergo due diligence and financial assessments that still apply to that organisation. One requirement will be to obtain a letter of recommendation from a known AmplifyChange partner. If registration is possible in your context, we would encourage unregistered groups who apply for an AmplifyChange Opportunity grant to start the registration process as soon as possible during the application stage.
AmplifyChange disbursements can only be made to an account in the name of the entity (not an individual) applying for funds.
However, if you do not have a bank account, you can still apply for an Opportunity grant, but we suggest you nominate a sponsoring organisation to help manage grant funding - an organisation that is prepared and able to help manage grant funds on your behalf.
We may need to conduct due diligence and financial assessments on your organisation and on the sponsoring organisation.
Opportunity grants can be up to a maximum of EUR10,000. There is no lower limit, it is possible to apply for less, but EUR10,000 is the maximum.
The maximum duration of funded projects is 1 year. There is no minimum duration.
Yes. There is no limit to the number of applications that one organisation can submit.
No. Whilst it is often beneficial for an organisation to have a formal structure, we recognise that in many situations this is not possible or appropriate. But we do ask you to tell us how decisions are made in your organisation.
