About this grant

Local nonprofits in East Africa only receive less than 15% of the total annual grant funding available for climate solutions on the continent. EED Advisory Limited, a local multidisciplinary and Pan-African consulting firm, works to solve this challenge by providing technical, analytical and advisory services to improve the competitiveness of local nonprofits for the available funding. With prior support, the grantee analyzed common requirements of climate funders and assessed the capacity needs of local nonprofits. The grantee also delivered three in-country training workshops to improve the capacity of local nonprofit fundraising for projects on the productive use of solar energy in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. With renewed support, the grantee will deepen its capacity-strengthening efforts for local nonprofits on climate fundraising. To this end, EED Advisory Limited will: 1) operate a dedicated technical assistance facility on climate fundraising; 2) run a climate finance fellowship program; and 3) strengthen local nonprofit collaboration opportunities through networking events.
