About this grant
Hlanganisa Institute of Development Southern Africa NPC, previously known as Hivos – South Africa, was established in 2006 to seek new and innovative solutions to persistent social challenges. The Multi-Agency Grants Initiative, managed by the grantee, is a collaborative venture between various funders in South Africa. Its purpose is to provide a responsive mechanism for making small grants to community-based organizations, including community advice offices. This grant increase will allow the grantee to provide additional support to community advice offices, promote gender and youth development in community advice offices, build team cohesion among paralegals in the Free State province, and contribute increased resources to evaluate the program.
