Africa Lead II and the CAADP Non-State Actors Coalition (CNC) are excited to announce a small grants program to strengthen the network of Non-State Actors supporting CAADP in Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda, and Kenya.
We invite interested organizations to submit a brief concept paper in order to earn the chance to apply for resources and support, build relationships and networks with key actors in CAADP, and put your idea into action. Grant activities will be funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to help surface creative and effective approaches to improve citizen engagement in national food security investment priorities (as outlined by the CAADP themes). To accomplish this, proposals shall focus on:
- Aligning NSA program design and development to the CAADP agenda to support relevant NAIP priorities;
- Making use of agricultural performance data relevant to specific CAADP themes for advocacy and strategic communication purposes; and
- Generating relevant data to support the ongoing monitoring of CAADP progress.
Applicants may propose new projects or scale up small projects that have demonstrated success. Awardees will be expected to share evaluation results and key lessons, and periodically disseminate activities and outcomes with the broader community. If your organization is working towards creative solutions for these objectives in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, or Senegal, please review the application and submit your idea.
