CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR SMALL PROJECT AND SUPPORT FUND (SPSF) PROGRAM

The Small Project and Support Fund (SPSF) is a project funded by Bread for the World (BfdW) to support small local initiatives that are made up of committed and dedicated people who may belong to any of these structures: self-help groups, community based organisations (CBO’s), faith based organisations (FBO’s) or smaller non-governmental organisations (NGO’s) or small local networks and their members working within their vicinity and context to improve the lives of the marginalised. The BfdW partner organisation AIDS Foundation of South Africa (AFSA) is the administrative partner (referred to as the “central project holder” (CPH)) of the SPSF and manages the programme autonomously based on criteria which have been mutually agreed with BfdW. Funding to successful applicants will be channelled through AFSA as the CPH.

The SPSF aims to empower communities to act and participate in their own development through actions that are designed, implemented and owned by the communities themselves. It will target grass-root initiatives that are known in their communities; at least 25% of the funded initiatives will be female led so as to address gender inequalities and drive female empowerment. For this pilot phase, the SPSF will run for 3 years; however, the maximum duration for each supported project or activity will be 1 year.
