The GLFx initiative, in partnership with the Robert Bosch Foundation, is opening a call to support five new GLFx chapters with seed funding of EUR 5,000 each in order to restore the greater Sahel region in Africa.
What is GLFx?
GLFx is designed to accelerate action globally by enabling individuals and groups with the necessary knowledge, technology and networks to connect, share, learn and act through a holistic approach in their local landscapes. The initiative consists of a decentralized network of independently organized chapters that foster regular gatherings of like-minded stakeholders to accelerate restoration activities within their landscapes.
What are GLFx Chapters?
GLFx chapters offer regular multi-stakeholder gatherings – online or in their village/town/city – to mobilize their community and coordinate local action projects. GLFx chapters host a minimum of one gathering each quarter, curate an online space for exchange on the GLFx platform, and support one or more action projects each year. Chapters are founded by a team of diverse individuals who submit an application to the GLF Secretariat.
Who can apply?
Applications will be accepted from groups/teams based in the 23 countries that share (part of) their territory with the greater Sahel region. These include Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia (Republic of the), Ghana, Guinea, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia.
