CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR) Programme

Hivos Southern African Hub aims towards an open and green society, inspired by humanist values such as freedom, dignity, responsibility and curiosity. Our objective is that every person can live in freedom and dignity on a planet that is sustainable. We pride ourselves as upholding the principles of Social innovation of generating new ideas and approaches that resolve existing social, cultural, economic and environmental challenges for the benefit of people and planet.

The Regional SRHR Fund (RSRHR Fund) is a regional mechanism that was set up by Ford Foundation and Hivos Southern Africa in 2010 to strengthen regional work in the region on SRHR with a view to improve coordination efforts to address major SRHR issues. At the end of 2017 the Fund signed a contract for additional funding from the Swedish Embassy in Lusaka to enable it to expand the breadth and focus of its work. The Fund currently focuses its efforts on Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR). To do so, it supports civil society responses to a diversity of ASRHR issues that are relevant at both the national and regional levels using grant-making as the main mechanism of support.   

Funding:  Grants will be provided to organisations proposing innovative ways to address the key challenges that young people and adolescents face in accessing sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) services. Grants will principally focus on providing support to regional ASRHR advocacy and capacity development efforts, although strategic linkages with broader initiatives in other regions will be encouraged.
