Small grants for implementing Regenerative projects in Camps and Settlements
Up to nine grants between GBP £5,000 to £10,000 available
Re-Alliance are developing a series of guidelines around regenerative responses in camps and settlements. As part of this we are looking to fund nine new action research projects.
Re-Alliance is exploring the themes above (camp design; shelters; food growing; water; community), and looking specifically for partners to pilot innovative approaches in one or more of the areas outlined below:
1. Camp wide composting schemes for soil creation
2. Shelter design using regenerative or reusable materials
3. Self-build latrines
4. Urban agriculture and food growing in cities
5. Energy and communications
We have funds to support up to 9 different pilots at this stage for the following amounts:
· 5 projects of up to £5,000 GBP
· 3 projects of up to £7,000 GBP
· 1 project of up to £10,000 GBP
Projects should be designed to last between six months and one year and applications should be submitted by completing a short form (https://forms.gle/8LR4dMqE9Q8e6nAz5) by 20th June 2022. All applications should include a mentor from a local university or someone who has broad international experience of regenerative principles within your chosen area, to help inform and guide the action research and monitor results.
If you are interested in bidding for one of the nine pilot funds, or acting as an informed mentor/researcher on one of the projects, we invite you to attend an information webinar on 19th May 2022 at either 08.00 or 18.00 BST to find out more about the fund and to identify a potential mentor or implementing partner if you don’t already have one.
We will ask successful applicants to send us photos, videos, and a set format of reporting to help us communicate the success of these techniques, and help others learn from these.
Communication and engagement with Re-Alliance must be done in English, or another language but translated into English.
Successful applicants must have an organisational bank account, or be working with an organisational fiscal sponsor.
We invite applications from organisations and groups who are implementing regenerative projects in the above areas. These may be new ideas, or ideas you have seen elsewhere but tailored to your context.
