Light for the World is an international disability and development organization whose vision is an inclusive society where no one is left behind. We enable crucial eye health services and help empower people with disabilities in some of the poorest regions of the world.
Our programmes include:
- Eye Health – preventing blindness and promoting eye health for all
- Education – ensuring children with disabilities receive quality, inclusive education.
- Work – enhancing access for persons with disabilities to opportunities for employment and self-employment
- Neglected Tropical Diseases – elimination and control of neglected tropical diseases.
We focus on the poorest and hardest to reach because that’s where we will have the biggest impact. We create change through local people, organizations, and structures because we want our impact to last.
To increase the pool of our committed and competent local civil society partners, Light for the World would like to call interested local CSOs who have proven experience on the ground in changing the lives of the community through sustainable livelihood programs. Light for the World will provide a grant to implement inclusive economic empowerment programs for a minimum of two years in Amhara and SNNP regions. This will be effective from 2022 onwards. This partnership can even go beyond for multiple years depending on availability of funding and organizational performance.
After review of the basic requirements, Light for the World will approach selected organizations for detailed Pre-award Capacity assessment in September/October 2021. Successful organization will be asked to submit a project proposal for implementation in 2022 and 2023.
If you have any questions, please send them through the email given above until COB 3rd of September. Light for the World will respond to your inquires on the 6th of September.
Note that this call for expression does not constitute a commitment on the part of Light for the World nor does it commit Light for the World to pay for any costs incurred in preparation and or submission of an expression of interest or application of proposal in the future. Light for the World will cancel this call for expression of interest at any time.
