HIV and AIDS Community Grants Program

The Community Grants Program funds organizations that offer evidence based activities in HIV prevention, care and support; capacity building; reduction of stigma and discrimination; and democracy, governance and human rights as related to the national HIV response.

Organizations providing any

combination of these interventions to key and/or priority populations (populations defined below), people living with HIV (PLHIV), orphans, vulnerable children and youth (OVCY) and/or adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) will be given preference for funding.

Reaching the goal of HIV epidemic control requires robust clinical interventions and simultaneously requires addressing social, cultural and legal barriers that may increase risks of acquiring HIV or reduce access to health services for people living with and affected by HIV.

Thus, the Community Grants Program funds organizations providing direct HIV prevention, care and support and programs which support the promotion, protection, and respect for human rights and the reduction of stigma and discrimination related to HIV.

Effective implementation of these activities requires building the capacity of civil society organizations in areas such as monitoring and evaluation and case management, as such, capacity building directly related to HIV activities may also be considered for funding.

Organizations selected for funding are required to have a direct impact in their local community and have community support in the form of funding, labor and/or other services.

Selected organizations must be able to establish clear performance goals, indicators and timely project deliverables that can be externally verified.

Funded organizations are also required to monitor, measure and report results achieved in accordance with PEPFAR’s reporting requirements.

Once the grant is over, the organization must be able to continue on its own or with other funding from the community and/or other donors.

The total average grant awarded in FY16 was $33,000 with either a one or two-year implementation period.

However, grants can be up to $50,000 which is approximately R650,000 (exchange rates vary constantly, but for this application a R13 = US$1 exchange rate is used); with a maximum two-year implementation period; requests for a smaller amount and/or shorter implementation period will be given equal consideration.

Please note, the grant is awarded in US Dollars, any risk due to exchange rate fluctuations is the responsibility of the grant recipient.

Keeping Half the Profits Beats Non-profits for Social Impact

Keeping Half the Profits Beats Non-profits for Social Impact

Melbourne social enterprise Who Gives A Crap sold nearly 3 million rolls of toilet paper in 2014/15 and gave half the proceeds to WaterAid Australia, but co-founder Simon Griffiths says the donation would have been less had the startup adopted a non-profit model when it launched two years ago.
