Recurring fundraising & grant opportunities for legal empowerment

There are numerous donors and grant-making groups in the world, many of whom offer recurring grant opportunities in human rights, access to justice and legal empowerment fields. This is not a comprehensive list whatsoever, but a start to some of the different donors and we encourage additions or suggestions on an on-going basis.

This is also an excellent publication titled: “Funding Resources for Community-based Groups in Africa” published by Urgent Action Fund - Africa focusing on women’s human rights, which includes many large donor organizations and also some specific to Africa:

Please feel free to contribute any useful additions!

Michael, Thanks very much for sharing this very important information on donors and grant making groups funding for access to justice and human rights. This worth exploiting.

I just took better notice of the great information lately and I feel Michael has proved to be humanist in sharing at a time i thought networking can mean exploitation of others!

Wonderful. We are happy you are here, @PATIENCE! :sunny: You are very welcome to our community. Let us know if you have any good ideas for fundraising and grant opportunities relevant in #sierraleone or generally, or if you have any specific questions.

@ndambamusa! Happy :cake: day! It’s your one year anniversary of joining the Global Legal Empowerment Network. I think of you often since our learning exchange in Kenya last fall, and hope all is well with you and your colleagues at MBOSCUDA in #cameroon.

Great to have you here, @PATIENCE.

Each of the donors listed above have their own procedures and requirements, so you’ll want to click through to their websites to learn about them. You can then get in touch with the ones that seem like a good fit for you.

I suggest you also look at who else is working on legal empowerment in Sierra Leone and get in touch with them, to find out how you might work together. That might be the easiest way towards donor support if you don’t already have ongoing projects and a track record. You can also get to know people who are talking about #sierraleone here in the forum and engage them in conversation, and contact them.

The member directory might also be a good place to find potential collaborators - just filter by Sierra Leone to see who is working in your country.
