Collaboration Grants for promoting Adolescent and Youth SRHR in East and Southern Africa

Grant Size $10,000 to $100,000   ,   Closing Date


Hivos is seeking proposals for its Collaboration Grants to support advocacy collaboration efforts and initiatives by consortia or networks with the aim to reinforce collaboration and networks of Civil Society Organizations.

The purpose is to amplify voices and promote collaboration in promoting adolescent and youth Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in East and Southern Africa.

The grant will focus on supporting advocacy initiatives, and strengthen them so that they can bring about positive change using the drivers of change as stated below:

  • Strategic engagement and policy dialogues for young people to engage duty bearers are made possible

  • Civil Society Organizations have enhanced spaces to air out SRHR issues affecting young people

  • Supporting legal environment and political will to repeal and replace restrictive retrogressive laws

  • Young people have the necessary technical expertise to undertake advocacy work

Funding Information
  • Award amount: Year 1: USD 100,000 / Year 2: USD 100,000

  • Project duration: Multi Year

Expected Key Results
  • Improved engagement of policy makers/legislatures, law enforcers, politicians, religious & community leaders.

  • Enhanced capacity for young people to undertake advocacy on SRHR issues affecting them.

The key results should ultimately result in duty bearers increasingly designing, adopting and implementing laws and practices that promote the SRHR of adolescents and young people. The Fund is committed to bringing about long-lasting, sustainable change, but also understands that the best way to do so is through collective action.

Preference will be given to:

  • Organizations or institutions in a network or consortia both at national and regional level (lead organization applies on behalf of all participating organisations involved in the initiative).

  • Proposals that are well thought out and demonstrate an innovative clear connection to the objectives of the Regional SRHR Fund and the call for proposal.

  • Proposals that articulate an innovative approach to working with key change makers and authorities that have power to bring about change.

  • Proposals that have the potential to realize meaningful youth participation in the ASRHR agenda in East and Southern Africa.

  • Proposals that demonstrate knowledge on related advocacy work being done in the same environment and provide justification on how the Regional SRHR Fund will complement it.

  • Proposals must demonstrate how the initiative will empower marginalized groups to advocate for their rights and access to services.

  • Proposals that factor in the linkage between SRHR and environmental matters such as climate change will be highly considered.

Eligible Countries
