About this grant

The Community Development Foundation of the Western Cape works to support the development of communities in the Western Cape province in South Africa. It was established in 2007 and builds the capacity of small community-based structures, promotes the development of young people, establishes women’s self-help initiatives, and makes small grants to community-based organizations. Past support enabled the grantee to establish community funds in several communities. Additionally, the grantee has supported initiatives that promote the development of youth, participated in learning events in the region, and supported other emerging community foundations. This grant will enable the Community Development Foundation of the Western Cape to continue implementing projects that encourage communities to improve their quality of life.
