Community Engagement Fund Description

This call invites concept notes for Cuso International’s CEF, funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) under the Blueprints for Gender Equality Project (BLUEPRINTS). The BLUEPRINTS project is a four (4) year project designed to build the capacity of local governments to better integrate gender into policies, programs and services to serve vulnerable groups. BLUEPRINTS is being implemented in Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The ultimate objective is to ensure the interests, needs, perspectives and rights of the marginalized groups, specifically women, young women, women living with disabilities, Indigenous women and LGBTQ2IA+ people, are factored into the country’s development plans and strategies. The CEF will fund small initiatives such as interactive advocacy campaigns, docu-films, art shows, photo reality projects, edutainment-based communication campaigns and digital applications and will be accessible to civil society organizations, including women’s rights organizations, youth groups and other community actors.

This call is the second of two calls to award a total of CAD $24,000 under the CEF. This first round call will award a maximum of two (2) projects with a combined total value of not more than $CAD 24,000.
