The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) supports small-scale but high-impact projects in South Sudan. The program aims to support projects designed and implemented by local implementing partners in South Sudan. The CFLI offers direct funding assistance to local organizations and women’s groups for small projects addressing one or more of the three thematic areas of focus: (1) gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls; (2) peace and security, with a focus on conflict prevention and building peace; and (3) growth that works for everyone, including women’s economic rights, decent jobs and entrepreneurship, investing in the poorest and most vulnerable, and safeguarding economic gains. A GBA will require applicants to: (1) consider how women, girls, men, and boys are affected differently by the problem their project is aiming to address, ensuring, at the same time, that the project does not cause harm; (2) consult women and/or girls in the development of their project proposal; and (3) ensure that the views of those women and/or girls inform the project’s design.
For 2020-21, the CFLI can also be used to fund projects that aim to respond to the complex COVID-19 crisis. To be considered for funding, the project proposal must meet one of the CFLI Thematic Priorities:
- Promoting proper sanitation and hygiene by establishing hand washing stations, and teaching proper hand washing techniques, in low-income communities.
- Raising awareness about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 through radio and social media campaigns.
- Supporting local health systems by providing temperature reading and health care referrals at established points in coordination with the Ministry of Health.
- Supporting the ability of local organizations to provide increased counselling and support services for victims of sexual and gender based violence, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Supporting mental health and well-being in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic through telehealth counselling.
- Improving access to health care in rural communities by equipping mobile medical clinics with basic medicines and personal protective equipment for health care workers.
- Improving nutrition for low-income communities impacted by COVID-19 by equipping mobile food banks.
Eligible recipients include: (1) local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organisations; and (2) local academic institutions working on local projects.
Actions must take place in South Sudan.
CFLI contributions per project will be a minimum of CAD $20,000 (approx. 15,000 USD) and a maximum of CAD $30,000 (approx. 23,000 USD). All projects must be completed between the date of signature of the Contribution Agreement and February 28th 2020.
