For our 2015 grant cycle, Web We Want is accepting grant proposals from projects that are working to bridge the divide between technical communities and traditional human rights communities. These projects may cover a wide range of activities, including technical talks; writing policy briefs about the importance of human rights standards for people involved in developing technical standards and holding a roundtable discussion; collaborative projects that promote understanding between human rights activists and technical experts; and other dialogues and events. Organisations may apply for funding up to USD $5,000.00 to develop and implement these projects. Applications will be accepted through June 15, 2015. You can apply here in 5 different languages (Arabic, English, French, Portuguese, Spanish).

That is why, in partnership with the Association of Progressive Communications (APC) the 2015 Web We Want Small Grants program has earmarked funds for 10 African projects that demonstrate an understanding of the Declaration, and simplifies it in a fun, engaging way.
As the Declaration gains traction, Web We Want aims to award grants of USD1500.00 to 10 African organisations that produce animations, songs, videos, or other original works that creatively promote the African Declaration on Internet Rights and Freedoms. Applications will be accepted through June 15, 2015.
