Accra, 27th September 2021
The Africa Transitional Justice Legacy Fund (ATJLF) is excited to announce its third Call for Proposals for funding. Eligible civil society organisations, community-based groups and networks of organisations working on transitional justice and human rights issues in Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, northeastern Nigeria, and Sierra Leone are kindly encouraged to apply.
The ATJLF will be providing funding support to enable organisations implement pioneering and impactful interventions in transitional justice processes in Africa. The Fund’s goal is to help rebuild communities and (re) activate survivor agency in West Africa.
The Fund will be accepting applications that seek to address issues under the following broad themes. Proposals can cut across the three themes and not necessarily one:
➢ Truth, Justice & Accountability
➢ Institutional Reform & Enabling Environment
Applications should contain pioneering ideas that seek to promote community-centred and transformational projects that amplify the role of survivors and victims in transitional justice processes in West Africa. Proposed initiatives should be geared towards rebuilding communities, empowering citizens, and transforming societies either in conflict, or those emerging from conflicts and dictatorships.
The ATJLF will be considering applications from Monday 27th September 2021 to Sunday 31st October 2021. Applications received after 31st October 2021 will not be considered in this round. Decisions for all ATJLF grants will be made by the ATJLF Advisory Committee. Successful applicants will be notified around November/December 2021.
