What sort of projects do we fund?
We welcome high quality applications that will support development and strengthen communities in Tunisia across all sectors. While we always seek a diversity of projects, this year we are especially looking for projects that will support development through:

  • women and girls economic and social empowerment
  • innovative and sustainable agricultural and water projects.
  • building of vulnerable communities’ resilience to COVID-19 and projects which support local COVID-19 response and recovery efforts

Regardless of the type of project, all applicants should consider the impact of the project on women, children or other disadvantaged groups, such as people with disabilities.
