Details of OSIWA.

The Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) is a grant-making and advocacy foundation that is part of the global Open Society Foundations Network. OSIWA works to support the creation of open societies in West Africa marked by functioning democracy, good governance, the rule of law, basic freedoms, and widespread civic participation. Our headquarters is in Dakar and we have country offices in Abuja, Monrovia, Freetown and Conakry.

OSIWA supports innovative interventions with effective strategies that respond to the broader deep-seated political, justice and socio-economic roadblocks to open society in West Africa. We seek to seize new opportunities and deploy novel methods, including technology and the arts, to address open society challenges.

OSIWA seeks proposals covering the following specific themes:

  • Economic Governance and Advancement
  • Justice Reform and the Rule of Law
  • Free, Quality and Independent Media
  • Equality and Anti-Discrimination
  • Democratic Practice

OSIWA primarily awards grants to local organizations based in West Africa. In rare and limited circumstances, OSIWA provides support to West Africa-based international organizations with a strong commitment to transferring knowledge to local groups they partner with. Our grants also go to government institutions as well as regional and sub-regional organizations working in our core priority areas. OSIWA requires all organizations seeking funding to be legally incorporated in their countries of intervention and interested organizations must submit a completed application proposal, budget, and other relevant documents including governance and leadership information (list of Board members, trustees and management staff who will be involved in the project, and proof of registration). Incomplete applications will be delayed.

OSIWA requires all organizations seeking funding to submit a completed proposal template, a budget,  and a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework. The application should also include the following information as attachments:

  • Proof of registration and (if available) a copy of organizational statutes;
  • A list of board members, trustees and staff;
  • A list of current activities or (if available) a most recent annual report;
  • A current organizational budget and, if available, an audited financial statement;
  • A recent project or organizational evaluation (if available).

Submission and Deadlines

Proposals should be sent preferably online via the online submission form (http://www.osiwa.org/grants/) or to: proposals@osiwa.org. Proposals will be accepted until April 30th, 2020.
OSIWA encourages early submission of proposals and submitted proposals will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Proposals received after the due date will not be considered. In order to assess diversity and inclusion in our grantmaking, kindly indicate in the application if the proposal is focused on women, youth or persons living with a disability.
