South Africa

This program area seeks to empower poor and marginalized communities to unlock resources and realize their development needs and aspirations.


Funding is made under two objectives.


Funding priorities for the Community Advice Office Sector

We seek to foster strong and sustainable community advice offices and related community-based organizations that assist poor and marginalized communities. We are making grants:

  • To intermediary organizations that fund community advice offices and related community-based organizations to provide free and accessible legal advice and related services to poor and marginalized people, ensure local community development, and help communities to hold local government accountable.
  • To networks and support organizations that assist with advocacy efforts and provide infrastructure support and capacity development to community advice offices and related community-based organizations.
