OSISA Innovative Grant

The Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) supports innovative programmes working towards open society ideals and which advocate for these ideals in southern Africa. The programmes we support will look beyond immediate symptoms and seek to address structural problems that reproduce poverty, inequality, exclusion and discrimination.

For the 2016 strategy year, OSISA invites proposals from civil society, community or state actors from our region for the following programme priority areas:   

  • Human Rights, Access to Justice and the Rule of Law
  • Democracy and Governance
  • Social and Economic Justice
  • Natural Resources Governance
  • Youth Arts and Culture
  • Women’s Rights
