About this grant

Ikhala Trust, established in 2000, is an indigenous grantmaker that provides small grants to community-based organizations in the Eastern Cape, one of the poorest provinces in South Africa. In addition to small grants, mostly in the areas of HIV/AIDS and local economic development, the trust provides training, capacity building and institutional support to these organizations.This grant will enable Ikhala Trust to continue activities that include implementing effective evaluation, capacity building and organizational development strategies to support and monitor the recipients of its grants; organizing project management workshops, field visits and learning events; hosting an annual learning conference where it will bring its grantees together to network; and documenting success stories to mobilize additional resources for community-based development
