The British High Commission Maseru is inviting NGOs working with communities in Lesotho and established community-based organisations to bid for small grant funding of up to M100,000, for the sustainable provision of Assistive Technology to people with disabilities in Lesotho.
The bidding process is competitive. Only the strongest bids will be selected.
The deadline for submitting bids is Sunday, 7 August 2022.
Selected projects will be informed by Monday, 15 August 2022. Implementing organisations will be required to attend a preparatory seminar.
