  • About

    Targeting (informal) groups or organisations to raise awareness, develop transformative leadership, build confidence and skills and work against stigmatisation of marginalised and discriminated groups. Empowerment grants are smaller grants with a maximum timeframe of 24 months. Informal groups can access funding by partnering with a formal ‘host’ organisation. In Tanzania, empowerment grants are available from €5,000 up to €25,000 on a rolling basis.
