Call for actions on World Day in Sub-Saharan Africa 2

World Day

By World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, on 17 June 2020

In the framework of this project, the World Coalition wants to support partner civil society organizations in organizing activities for the World Day Against the Death Penalty (10 October).  For the whole project, the World Coalition will help finance World Day activities in the following countries: Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Liberia, Mauritania, Niger, Republic of Congo, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Togo.

For 2020, the second time we launch this offer, the World Coalition will grant up to EUR 9,000 distributed amongst the 9 countries listed. We encourage interested organizations to partner together with local ACATs or other World Coalition members to apply, as strength in numbers will help the activity. To do so, the World Coalition is launching a call for actions for 18th World Day Against the Death Penalty and will help finance activities with small grants from EUR 500 to EUR 1,000.

Please note that the World Coalition small grants offer will follow the terms and conditions imposed by the French Development Agency (AFD) and the European Union.
