Africa Online Safety Fund
FUND MANAGEMENT Impact Amplifier, a South African based social impact advisory firm will be managing the Fund. It will be critically supported by ISD, a UK based think and do tank, dedicated to understanding and innovating responses to polarisation, hate and extremism of all forms. FUND STRUCTURE The Africa Online Safety Fund will be awarding grants to organisations that address one or more of the safety issues the internet facilitates. There are two categories of funding: Transformative and Catalytic. The Transformative projects are intended to be larger in scale, reach multiple geographies and or potentially large numbers of beneficiaries, and be scalable as a solution. The Catalytic projects are intended to be smaller, targeted, and potentially only locally or culturally specific. The Transformative grants will be a maximum of $100,000 and the Catalytic Grants will be a maximum of $10,000. A $1,000,000 commitment has been made to address online safety issues in Africa.
