Africa Transitional Justice Legacy Fund Announces First Call for Grants
Africa Transitional Justice Legacy Fund (ATJLF) is pleased to announce its first set of grants from the 2019 open call for proposals.
Seventeen (17) organisations will receive almost half a million US dollars in funding to undertake transitional justice (TJ) projects in Côte d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone; Guinea, Liberia, The Gambia and northern Nigeria. The awards range from $10,000 to $50,000 USD per organisation. All projects will be implemented over a 12-month period and are expected to commence immediately.
The grants announced will support Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and survivor groups to undertake truth-seeking and truth-telling initiatives, support demand-side justice and accountability processes, and augment survivor-led reparations for victims in the six countries. The grants will also support a range of projects to promote reconciliation and social cohesion at national and community levels. In addition, the grants will support projects that seek to develop and strengthen national policy frameworks on transitional justice patterned after the African Union Transitional Justice Policy (AUTJP), to ensure redress, and engender greater involvement of vulnerable and marginalised groups.

The next round of open call for proposals will be announced next month (March).
