Apply for Al Madad Foundation’s 2021 Grant Program
The Al Madad Foundation is seeking proposals for its 2021 Grant Program to empower some of the world’s most vulnerable children by providing opportunities to heal, learn and grow.
The objective is to support civil society institutions and schools in delivering creative and innovative solutions to problems facing refugee children in the Middle East and Europe. A broad range of initiatives will be considered, but preference will be given to applications that fall under the following themes:
Identification of innovative and impactful approaches to make education safe, accessible, and resilient in emergencies.
Implementation of comprehensive wellbeing schemes into existing educational bodies supporting refugee and displaced children
Bridging the educational gap for out-of-school refugee children with alternative programmes to prepare them to successfully reintegrate into mainstream school
Supporting the development of tailored educational settings to empower displaced and refugee children in host communities through the means of education.
Effecting change in the lives of displaced and refugee children through the means of artistic expression and specialist artistic intervention
Promoting understanding of heritage and cultural activities to help displaced and refugee children preserve the connection with their communities
Supporting holistic approaches to wellbeing to help emancipate the most vulnerable and eliminate as many of their immediate needs as possible.
They have offered grants between £20,000 and £250,000 and awarded them at values of £20,000, £50,000 and £100,000.
Must not be an existing project unless it is entering a new phase of development; they will consider incorporating existing costs (if applicable) during the implementation of the new project if there is a demonstrably necessary link between the two
Must clearly illustrate the organisation’s ability to effectively implement the project, and that it would provide value for money, constitute added value in the field and contain a clear monitoring process
Must include children amongst the beneficiaries
Must not have as an aim the promotion one religion or faith
Must not duplicate work already in practice in the field
In order to be eligible applicants must:
Be a registered charity in the country in which they are headquartered
Individuals who wish to apply can only do so in conjunction with a registered organisation (e.g. an academic researcher might apply with the backing of their university)
Be able to meet their reporting requirements
Have a Child Protection Policy in place that conforms to the laws of the country in which they operate and a clear methodology that demonstrates that it is appropriately and consistently applied
