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. Past support allowed the grantee to pilot a new model of support to advice offices in the Free State province, while continuing to build women leadership in the community advice office sector. Ongoing support will allow the grantee to continue in this direction with an additional activity to build and strengthen case management systems.
