Grant Window - Small Beginnings

The smaller CSOs are closer to the communities and enable adequate grassroots level engagement and are therefore critical civil society actors.

The Small Beginnings window provides small grants to emerging and less resourceful CSOs to allow them to grow in terms of capacity and eventually become eligible to more flexible core funding.

The NIOs are facilitating the capacity development of smaller CSOs providing them with the requisite training, mentoring and on the job training to help them strengthen their internal systems in preparation for direct funding from CSF under the Small Beginnings window.
