GHANA Somubi Dwumadie LAUNCHES GHS11MILLION GRANTS FUND FOR CIVIL SOCIETY


Ghana Somubi Dwumadie has launched its second call for proposals. Under this call for proposals, the programme plans to award grants totalling up to GHS11,000.000.



Ghana Somubi Dwumadie is a four-year disability programme in Ghana, with a specific focus on mental health. This programme is funded with UK aid from the UK government.


Proposals to the fund should focus on projects which build evidence and effectiveness for mental health and disability inclusion interventions, and ensure that people with disabilities, including people with mental health disabilities, are in the lead on approaches to improve their wellbeing, social and economic outcomes, and rights.


Key objectives of the grants are to improve the wellbeing of, and empower people with disabilities, including mental health disabilities; to reduce stigma and discrimination; and to generate evidence through research to inform policy and

practice on disability and mental health.


The call for applications has been published in the dailies and on the programme's webpage, and applications are being accepted from 18th December 2020 to 18 January 2021. 


The call covers applications from across the country, but with priority for projects in under-served regions, particularly the Northern, Upper East, Upper West, Savana, North East, Bono East, Bono, Volta, Oti and Central regions.


Organisations eligible to apply for funding under this call include Disabled People's Organisations, Self-Help Groups, Women's Rights Organisations and other Civil Society Organisations. Research institutions (including universities) and media organisations can apply in partnership with any of the eligible organisations to conduct research or social and behaviour change activities


Applicants will be assessed based on a set of criteria, including how their proposals address the call objectives, and how they will benefit and involve people with disabilities, including people with mental health disabilities.


The programme intends to complete the selection process by February 2021 and to disburse funds to successful grantees by April 2021.
