Today, more than 70.8 million men, women and children are forcibly displaced worldwide.

OpenIDEO and GHR Foundation jointly invite proposals that address urgent global challenges in radically new ways.

Submissions should target a specific, pressing, and solvable need across two or more of these themes and also be:
a) Actionable and tangible: Idea must be actionable and build tangible results in the community of focus, rather than research, convenings, policy development, or advocacy
b) Within scope: Idea must be implemented within a 36-month timeline and within a budget up to US $200,000
c) Representative: Idea must show evidence that the voice and perspective of a person currently or previously experiencing displacement is part of the ideation, process, and project.

Ideas are invited from individuals and teams currently or previously experiencing displacement, working anywhere in the world.

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply;
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills.
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and use its filters (right upper corner) to find what really suits you.
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others.
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests - tell these stories too. They will enlighten and inspire the sisterhood.
