About this grant

The Southern Africa Trust was established in 2005 to support civil society organizations in southern Africa to participate effectively and with credibility in policy dialogues. The Change4ever Campaign was launched in 2007 to raise awareness about levels of poverty and create platforms for the public to participate in finding solutions. Past support enabled the grantee to host a fundraising dinner to raise funds for poverty alleviation initiatives and create awareness about poverty. The grantee also facilitated learning exchanges among youth from southern Africa on poverty alleviation initiatives. This grant will support the grantee to create platforms for local giving to local causes, continue raising awareness about poverty, and raise the profile of philanthropy.
