Grants to Support Digital Rights and Freedoms

By  | 

The Web We Want, in collaboration with the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), is happy to announce the launch of the second wave of its Small Grants programme for 2015. Following a hugely successful debut grant cycle in 2014, which supported over 50 initiatives throughout the world, the Web We Want coalition is seeking to extend grants to projects that advocate for a free, open, neutral, and universally accessible Internet.

Taking inspiration from past grantees, and with a focus on the newly developed African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms that was launched in 2014 by a collection of Internet and digital rights organisations, the 2015 Web We Want Small Grants programme has earmarked funds for 10 African projects that demonstrate an understanding of the Declaration, and simplifies it in a fun, engaging way. As the Declaration gains traction, Web We Want aims to award grants of USD1500.00 to 10 African organisations that produce animations, songs, videos, or other original works that creatively promote the African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms.

Eligibility

A sum of USD1500.00 to any African organisations that produce animations, songs, videos, or other original works that creatively promote the African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms.
