  • Country: Zambia

Capacity Building

Poverty and HIV/AIDs in Zambia is causing an epidemic of abandoned, neglected or orphaned children as family means are stretched beyond breaking point. Parents and extended relatives simply cannot afford to feed, clothe and educate the younger generation so many turn to orphanages as a last resort.

  • Grant: $10,001 to $25,000
  • Target Group: Marginalised people
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Any
  • Country: South Africa

Capacity Building

In South Africa, early childhood education programs are poorly funded by a government already inundated with developmental mandates.  Many of the system’s teachers were taught under the apartheid regime and did not receive a quality education themselves.  Without best practice systems in place and limited opportunities for knowledge sharing, the motivation and morale of teachers within disadvantaged communities is low and leads to high absenteeism.

  • Category: Anti-trafficking
  • Grant: $10,001 to $25,000
  • Target Group: Any
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Adolescents
  • Country: Colombia

Child Soldier Reintegration

Upon a backdrop of domestic violence, unemployment, gang crime and an endemic black-market of illicit substances, armed conflict has been tearing Colombia apart for some decades.  Sadly, many families have been caught up in the crossfire and it is not only adults who have taken up arms.

  • Country: Myanmar

Unimproved water sources in Myanmar compromise hygiene, sanitation and drinking water availability.  Unfiltered rivers and swamps are contaminated by human and animal waste, chemical pollutants and heavy metals which can quite often be fixed by simple low-technology solutions.

  • Grant: $25,001 to 75,000
  • Target Group: Orphans
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Children
  • Country: Zimbabwe

Community Child Wellbeing Centre

Although Zimbabwe is ranked among the best in Africa for literacy rates, premature school dropout and subsequent income insecurity are rampant.  Credit facilities have little on offer for those who lack collateral security, thereby limiting their earning potential due to lack of investment.  Some are labour constrained, whilst others are labour endowed; but almost all destitute Zimbabweans are food poor and without means to support their household.

Community Development
  • Category: Agriculture & food security, Community development, Education, Health, Life / Vocational Skilling
  • Grant: $10,001 to $25,000
  • Target Group: Any
  • Gender: Any
  • Age: Adults
  • Country: Burundi

Community Development

The large number of Burundian men killed by the HIV/AIDs epidemic or conflict, has created many poor and fragile households headed by women or minors who have little income to spare.  In order for the country to rebuild and provide a future for the next generation, these widows and orphans require adequate housing, healthcare, education and vocational training.

  • Grant: $10,001 to $25,000
  • Target Group: Marginalised people

  • Country: Sri Lanka

Community Empowerment

As humanitarian crises have lifted in Sri Lanka, national development has shifted its focus toward building a strong economic core in the private sector and diversifying rural livelihoods.  Demographic transition that has accompanied the drive toward middle-income country status now poses some challenges regarding aged dependency.

  • Target Group: Ethnic minorities, People with Disabilities
  • Gender: Any

Across the rugged terrain of Tajikistan there are scattered communities in great need.  Disability is stigmatized, medical facilities are overrun, the employment base is narrow and drinking water is in short supply.
