Call for Concept Notes: Capacity Building, Leadership Development & Mentoring

Zishaye Grassroots Fund is looking for concepts that seek to build the capacity of grassroots organizations and their leaders to better deliver on their mandate in the fields of social justice and human rights. The fund seeks to support grassroots initiatives because we believe communities that are directly affected by these issues are the most effective at leading efforts to address them.
