The Hub Cymru Africa has launched a small grants scheme to support the Wales Africa community to use digital tools with partners in Africa.
This scheme is supported by the Waterloo Foundation.
Key elements of the digital support grants:
- The grants are intended to assist organisations in Wales that support partners in Africa in delivering project work to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals to make better use of digital technology in their work
- The grants are intended to support the work of the partner organisation and the partnership. They are not intended as project grants which have their own development outcomes
- The funding could be used for new hardware, software, licenses, training, skills development, data allowances, online communications and other tools which would support your partner’s work or your partnership
- These grants are particularly designed to make a difference in the work of your partner and partnership. For that reason, it is unlikely that applications to support organisations for which this area of work is already well-funded will be successful.
- You can apply for £500-£1000 to support international solidarity projects.
- The funding could be used for new hardware, software, licenses, training, skills development, data allowances, online communications and other tools which would support your partner’s work or your partnership.
