Are you considering applying for a grant from Karibu? We encourage you to read more about what we support, as well as Karibu’s Frequently Asked Questions, for important information about Karibu, our grant requirements, and what types of projects are eligible for support before you consider applying.

Below you will find important information that you should read carefully before submitting an application via our Grant Management System (GMS).

Our approach

Global South led

Global South led

Karibu supports activities and movements that are anchored in the Global South (Africa, Asia, Latin-America, Middle East).

As a general rule, we do not provide support to organizations or networks that are based in the Global North.

Systemic focus

Systemic focus

Karibu prioritizes projects that have a systemic focus – where change affects how the whole system functions.

Karibu does not give support to the regular operation of development projects, such as health, education, infrastructure, agriculture and/or local capacity building.

Collaborative movement building

Collaborative movement building

Karibu prioritizes projects that are South-South in nature (one or more countries or territories in collaboration).

In most cases, we do not provide support to projects that are working only nationally or locally in scope.
