Apply for Grant

The Karibu Foundation supports activities and movements that are anchored in the Global South, which are providing alternatives to the dominant paradigms of power, distribution, and development. Projects that Karibu supports are primarily related to the areas of information exchanges, mobilizing efforts, legislative and research efforts, bridge-building, dialogue, and capacity building.

Karibu does not give support to the regular operation of development projects, such as health, education, infrastructure and/or agriculture. We also do not support projects connected to an individual, such as scholarships for education.   In addition, we rarely provide support to organizations or networks that are based in the Global North.  

Starting in 2017, Karibu receives applications online through our new Grant Management System (GMS).

Deadlines for the consideration of applications for the second half of 2018 are as follows:


19. August 2018, will be processed in September 2018
28. October 2018, will be processed in November 2018

Deadlines for the first half of 2019 will be posted at a later date.

Applications must be sent to Karibu in good time, so that our processing is completed before the project described in the application is set to begin.
