Grants to fight HIV and AIDS through Football-based Programs:

The King Baudouin Foundation has launched a call for proposals for organizations in Africa to support football-based programs that deliver education on HIV/AIDS with the aim of preventing more young people from contracting the disease and reducing the stigma which surrounds it.

Grants will be open to all African based initiatives.

Projects which focus directly or indirectly to address girls as the primary target may be preferred, but other innovative, collaborative and focused initiatives will also be valued.

Target group:

Support is intended for the following types of organizations:

  • Africa based.
  • Nationally registered non-governmental organization, association, or club.
  • Football program.
  • HIV/AIDS program experience (education, prevention, stigma reduction).
  • Youth serving.
  • Gender program experience.

    Minimum project criteria required for funding consideration:

  • Football program.
  • Youth targeted.
  • Clear and sharply focused set of goals and objectives.
  • Clear program plan that includes addressing girls’ vulnerability, either directly or indirectly.
  • Clear program plan that includes addressing HIV prevention and/or stigma reduction.
  • Program plan that includes education and skill building (e.g. life skills, leadership skills, negotiation skills, financial literacy, livelihood training, gender training).

    An example of the project given:

    In Zambia, a football and health camp is reaching 14-24 year old boys and their parents.

    The program promotes male responsibility in sexual and reproductive health, HIV/AIDS prevention, family planning, and child health.

    Awareness and educational messages are integrated by coaches into football training and competition.

    The financial support will be in the range between €3,500 and €17,000 and cannot represent more than 40% of an organization’s annual budget.

    Application Deadline; 1st February.
