1) Objective

PD Harare invites proposals for projects that strengthen networks between the people of the United States and the people of Zimbabwe through exchanges highlighting our ideas and values. All programs MUST include an American component, such as an American expert engagement (physical or virtual) in Zimbabwe or Zimbabweans traveling to the United States to collaborate and exchange best practices in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. perspectives. Projects that correspond to this year’s specific Notices Of Funding Opportunities (NOFO) and incorporate a strong American component into their design will be prioritized over other proposals.

PD Harare strongly encourages applicants to apply directly to 2023’s specific NOFOs to increase their chances of selection. Other projects must tie into the following themes:

· Promote democratic principles including freedom of speech; particularly if they share best practices for citizen advocacy or explore the challenges modern media houses face in a digital economy and the ethical standards needed to gain public confidence.
· Progress an inclusive economy; particularly connecting social entrepreneurs and the creative community with emerging digital markets.
· Deepen U.S.-Zimbabwean university partnerships; particularly if they bolster stronger research capacity and explore the challenges university administrations face in today’s market.
· Deepen U.S.-Zimbabwean professional networks through participation in conferences and rekindling alumni exchange partnerships to solve new problems.
· Foster social inclusion of underserved communities, such as disabled persons, minority ethnic groups, LGBTQI+, and those in remote rural areas.
