Applications in support of initiatives that are building sustainable futures in the semi-arid areas of Africa are especially welcome to the Noel Buxton Trust African Grant.
They would also welcome applications that enable practical solutions and demonstrate a commitment to strengthening community-based organizations and ensuring the voice of poor and marginalized women and men are properly heard and respected.
Trustees tend to offer grants to smaller, grassroots organizations and do not generally respond to appeals from large and well-supported charities and applications should be made in English.
