Request for Proposals: Community Based Organisations in South Africa

The Fund has been set up to galvanize action around the GBVF National Strategic Plan (NSP). Led by an independent Board of Directors, the Fund is a private sector-led initiative that aims to consolidate, ensure a consistent and coordinated approach in response to GBVF in society and the world of work.
