Kaleidoscope Trust announces launch of small advocacy grants for civil society organisations in Eastern Caribbean

Kaleidoscope Trust has launched a series of small advocacy grants available to civil society organisations in the Eastern Caribbean working towards positive change in social norms, laws and policies on women and girls’ equality and LGBT+ inclusion. 
The grants form part of the Commonwealth Equality Project (CEP), a new programme co-led by Kaleidoscope Trust and Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WfD) to fight discrimination against women and girls, LGBT+ people and other intersectionally disadvantaged groups in a selection of Commonwealth countries. The programme, funded by the UK Government, seeks to strengthen civil society organisation’s capacities and alliances to advocate on gender and LGBT+ inclusion matters and change social norms.

The grants are open to organisations working in and across Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and can fund capacity building, and outreach and advocacy activities by civil society organisations between January and March 2021.

The call for applications is currently open, and closes 28th December 2020 23:59pm GMT. Interested applicants can access the Call for Proposals and Application Form here.

For questions and queries, a Zoom webinar with the CEP team has been scheduled for Monday 21st December at 16.00 GMT (London time) // 12.00 ECT. You will be able to access the Zoom webinar on the 21st December by clicking here.
