Al Madad Foundation Grant Program to Create Direct Pathways to Formal Education

About

The Al Madad Foundation (AMF) has announced a call for proposals for its Grant Program to support civil society institutions and schools in delivering creative and innovative solutions to specific problems facing refugee and displaced children and youths in the Middle East and Europe and find approaches to make education safe, accessible, and resilient in emergencies.

Through this AMF aspires to identify and correct gaps in existing educational and protection systems that are failing to offer sustainable solutions to refugee children and youths and their families.

It is essential that the proposed project:

  • Shows clear innovation and it therefore cannot be an existing project unless it is entering a markedly new phase of development; AMF will consider incorporating existing costs (if applicable) during the implementation of the new project if there is a demonstrably necessary link between the two

  • Proposes AMF as the exclusive donor of the project (AMF should be the sole donor of the new project or “innovation”, however, it is understood that if the innovation is an addition to an existing project the latter may require involvement from other donors)

  • Clearly illustrates the organisation’s ability to effectively implement the project, and that it would provide value for money, constitute added value in the field and contain a clear monitoring process

  • Does not have as an aim the promotion one religion or faith

  • Does not duplicate work already in practice in the field

  • Targets children or youths; AMF will consider projects for “youths” (defined by the UN as 15-24), however, their focus is on “children” (defined by the UN as aged under 18) so they would expect a significant proportion of any project targeting youths to include the 15-18 age-group

Funding Information
  • Organisations can submit one application for any amount up to £100,000 for a defined project of up to three years’ duration

  • While the full amount allocated to this call is £100,000, more than one organisation may be selected for funding, and only truly exceptional proposals are likely to be awarded the funding in its entirety.

Eligibility :

In order to be considered eligible, organisations must have:

  • Registered charity status in the country in which they are headquartered; individuals who wish to apply can only do so in conjunction with a registered organisation (e.g. an academic researcher might apply with the backing of their university)

  • The capacity to meet their reporting requirements which will ultimately be decided between AMF and the grant recipient after a thorough review of the Full Application Form

  • Policies in place to ensure that the Child Protection laws of the country in which they operate are obeyed and a clear methodology that demonstrates that it is appropriately and consistently applied

  • Preference will be given to:

    • Projects that establish/refurbish/equip in-person schools

    • Projects that take place in-person where possible, rather than through remote learning solutions

    • Projects that are sustainable, or have sustainable elements, beyond the period of AMF’s involvement or which have a natural, defined end-point

    • Projects in which staff are able to commit to regular contact with AMF in order to communicate progress

    • Projects that have ‘built in’ methods of obtaining service-user feedback
