Local organizations based in West Africa can apply for funding.
The Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) is accepting proposals to support initiatives in Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Senegal.
Possible target areas include journalism, information and digital rights. Proposals must promote investigative journalism and free, quality and independent media.
The amount of funding varies. In the event that OSIWA cannot fund the entire project budget, it may choose to fund part of it and request the grant seeker to source for the outstanding balance.
The deadline is April 30.
