Education for Refugee and Displaced Children and Youth in Sub‑Saharan Africa

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on March 8, 2021 in Research Funding

Global Affairs Canada has launched this call as part of its "Together for Learning" campaign, which aims to promote quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for refugee, internally displaced (IDP) and host community children and youth. This opportunity will be funded to a maximum of $40 million over 5 years.

This call aims to fund innovative solutions that increase access to quality education by providing additional funding for organizations that understand the needs of their communities and are providing essential education services for refugees and IDPs. This call will enable partnerships between Canadian organizations, national organizations, host communities, and refugee-led organizations (RLOs) and IDP-led organizations.

Applicants must work with local, grassroots organizations. Applicants must present project proposals which:

  • have a duration of least four years and not more than five years;
  • present budgets ranging from $5 million to $20 million;
  • target one or more ODA-eligible countries among the following: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan or Uganda
