The “Karibu New Realities Grant” (KNRG)” – an African-led and co-designed grantmaking pilot project within the Karibu Foundation – is pleased to accept concept notes for ongoing or emerging projects in Sub-Saharan Africa with start date of 1st January 2023.
The project’s “Core Group” (made up of primarily African activists and civil society members) is looking to support grassroots networks, formations and/or organizations in Sub-Saharan Africa who are undertaking imaginative initiatives that strengthen and add new dimensions to the collective struggle for systemic justice. This is specifically related to the economic, socio-cultural, political, and ecological crises we face.
We are aiming to support groups of change-agents in Sub-Saharan Africa who have bold, innovative, forward-thinking, and “constructive troublemaking” ideas that disrupt the status quo of injustices that the continent and our world are currently facing.
