Civil Society Development Fund – Call for applications closed [fr]
The Embassy of France would like to thank all civil society organizations that have applied for funding for projects to promote access to basic services and advance Human rights.
The Civil Society Development Fund (CSDF), an initiative of the Embassy of France in South Africa, supports the participation of South African Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in local governance.
The CSDF focuses on developing the CSOs’ capacity to advocate the interests of marginalized communities, to contribute to local public policies and to reinforce the accountability of local governments towards their citizens.
The objectives of the CSDF are (1) Improving the quality and access to basic services with a specific focus on sustainable development of communities and social cohesion and (2) Promoting Human rights, especially those of marginalized groups.
Our call for applications is now closed. Shortlisted CSOs will be contacted in August and invited to participate in the second selection round.
