Global Affairs Canada is launching a call for Canadian organizations entitled “Education for Refugee and Displaced Children and Youth in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This call is part of the department’s campaign ‘Together for Learning’ – Education for refugee, other forcibly-displaced and host community children and youth, which aims to promote quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for refugee, internally displaced, and host community children and youth.
This call is designed to increase access to education for refugee and displaced children and youth. Targeted capacity building, combined with small grants for core activities, locally driven education-related programming, and policy engagement, would amplify the voices of refugee and internally displaced people (IDPs) and those of organizations that represent them and are led by them.
The call has 3 core objectives:
a) Facilitate organizational capacity building among local RLO and / or IDP-led organizations working in the education sector;
b) Provide grants to local organizations, particularly RLO and / or IDP-led organizations;
c) Amplify the voices of local RLO and IDP-led organizations working in the education sector.

Under this call, your proposed project must contribute to the achievement of the ultimate outcome: enhanced equitable and inclusive learning outcomes for refugee, internally displaced, and host community children and youth, particularly girls and adolescent girls, living in select countries of sub-Saharan Africa eligible for official development assistance.
Through innovative solutions, the call aims to increase access to quality education by providing additional funding for organizations that are best placed to understand the needs of their communities and are on the front lines of providing essential education services for refugees and IDPs.

Provide 2 separate financial statements for the most recent fiscal years (audited statements are preferred; if these are not available, the statements must be signed by a member of the board of directors of each signatory, by the board’s delegate or by the owner(s).
