Firelight Foundation will only accept letters of inquiry in 2014 from organizations that meet the criteria outlined below.
- Under this request for proposals, Firelight seeks to fund grassroots organizations working to keep children safe in their communities, including within their homes and in schools. We will prioritize organizations already working on child rights, child protection, or activities that help build children’s emotional health. However, we welcome applications from organizations that work to improve the wellbeing of vulnerable children, families, and communities and want to integrate child protection, child rights, or emotional health into their work.
Firelight Foundation is seeking to fund a cohort of partners in Shinyanga Region, Tanzania and in Zimbabwe in the following districts: Kadoma, Kwekwe, Gokwe North, Gokwe South, Nkayi, Lupane, Binga, and Hwange. Only organizations based in these areas are eligible to apply. Organizations based in other districts/regions will be declined.
