Funding opportunity for groups in Nigeria: Dutch MFA Sudden Opportunities fund

"Are you concerned about the low level of citizens’ influence in governance processes in Nigeria? Do you wish to undertake a collective action to reverse the trend of a shrinking civic space affecting the freedoms of assembly, speech and association? Do you wish to challenge the direction of unfair practices in society affecting the most marginalised and discriminated groups in Nigeria? Is there a national opportunity for strategic advocacy and/or litigation, peaceful offline protests, or coordination of CSOs for collective action that can lead to change in policy/laws, or a shift in public attitudes and practices?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then consider applying for this Sudden Opportunity Grant to demonstrate that meaningful citizen engagement matters! This grant is available from Euro 5,000 to Euro 200,000 for an intervention that will last between 6 and 12 months."
