Organisation:  CPC Learning Network


Apply By:  31 Jul . 2018

The INSPIRE Working Group has launched a call for proposals to support INSPIRE awareness-raising and engagement activities in low- and middle-income countries.

To enable leaders from Low- and Middle-Income Countries increase INSPIRE awareness and engage civil society and governments at national and regional levels, and from those experiences to actively exert leadership in shaping and driving INSPIRE globally. Funding is made possible by the New Venture Fund and Ignite Philanthropy: Inspiring the End to Violence Against Girls and Boys.

The INSPIRE Working Group provides a forum where governments, bilaterals, CSOs, professional associations, donors, and UN agencies can:

Collaborate to achieve collective impact at global and country level;

Share relevant information on an ongoing basis; and 3) periodically review their joint progress in supporting INSPIRE implementation.

Funding Information

  • A total of $750,000.00 USD is available within the INSPIRE Fund for this purpose.
  • Contracts will be considered in the range of $5,000 USD – $30,000 USD


The INSPIRE package – made up of the INSPIRE Core document and INSPIRE Implementation Handbook – includes the following seven strategies that together provide a framework for ending violence against children:

  • Implementation and enforcement of laws;
  • Norms and values
  • Safe environments
  • Parent and caregiver support
  • Income and economic strengthening
  • Response and support services
  • Education and life skills (safe schools)

Eligibility Criteria

Contracts will be issued to:

Primary Audience

  • Local individuals, organizations and consortia (national and regional-level) from low- and middle-income countries (including but not limited to INSPIRE Working Group members):
  • Priority will be given to local NGOs/CSOs (and local NGO/CSO-led consortia), however, we also welcome applications from other local agencies such as government and academic institutions.
  • Individual applicants will only be considered if they can demonstrate extensive prior thematic and country-level expertise, access to networks and existing relationships.

Secondary audience

Submissions from International NGOs (or INGO-led consortia) will be considered; however, they should clearly demonstrate how the proposed activities have been designed with local ownership in mind and how local actors will benefit directly.
