The projects that Karibu supports are:
1. generally related to the areas of mobilizing efforts, information, legislative and research efforts, bridge-building, dialogue, and capacity building;
2. strategically aimed at long-term social outcomes.

The Foundation grants are aimed at:
a) providing human, professional and economic resources to enable movements to continue their struggle for justice;
b) providing support to networks and initiatives that work for deeper analysis, stronger representation and improved capacity for advocacy;
c) establishing meeting points and joint approaches between groups in the South (South-South), as well as with groups in the North (South-North), to form global alliances in the struggle for justice.

For first time grantees, Karibu rarely provides grants for more than USD 15.000 to a project spanning over the course of one year. The final amount might be less than this amount.

Utilize This Offer

Karibu does NOT give support to the regular operation of development projects, such as health, education, infrastructure and/or agriculture.

Application deadlines for 2020: Jan 12; Mar 28; May 17; Aug 24; Oct 26.

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 = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and attests 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 proposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit 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; yes, tell these stories too... - they will enlighten and inspire your network.
