The INSPIRES consortium is seeking applications from local civil society organizations for a capacity building process to strengthen their resiliency in the face of potential impacts of growing restrictions on civic space.
- Requirements: Organizations in Ecuador, Georgia, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, and Serbia will be considered for the Resiliency+ process. To be eligible for consideration, an organization must have at least four years of operational experience, since the Resiliency+ Process provides tailored resiliency support and assumes a certain level of general organizational development. Additionally, it is vital for each applicant organization to commit to dedicating staff time to this accompaniment process. The R+ approach involves a small team of staff from different functional teams from your organization who will participate in the assessment and capacity strengthening activities over a period of 12 months.
- Selected organizations must demonstrate civic space factors affecting their daily work, such as legal environment restrictions, financial constraints, negative narratives about civil society, and fragmentation of civil society. A diversity of organizations will be considered, including but not limited to rural/urban, male/female-led, and small/large. Organizations of various types and thematic focus are encouraged to apply.
