The Civil Society Development Fund, run by the Embassy of France in South Africa, supports South African Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in their endeavours to participate in democratic and effective local governance.

Although the South African Constitution mandates local governments "to encourage the involvement of communities and community organisations in matters of local government", research has shown that South African Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) are often not adequately equipped to participate in local governance.

The aim of the Civil Society Development Fund is to help bridge this gap in capacity.

It will focus on developing CSOs’ capacity to advocate the interests of marginalized communities, to contribute to local public policies and to reinforce the accountability of local governments towards citizens.

The Embassy of France calls for project proposals from CSOs that are looking to strengthen their capacity to engage with local authorities and local communities on issues of access to basic services, social cohesion and respect of human rights, especially women and children’s rights.

The Civil Society Development Fund has a budget of € 600 000 over three years.

Four projects will be selected.

The average grant per project is expected to be around € 65 000. Allocations made by the Civil Society Development Fund may not exceed 70% of the total project budget.

Deadline: 31st August.
