In celebration of our 4th anniversary, we are proud to announce the launch of our new Southern Africa Small Grants Program for youth-led initiatives working to address the needs of young women living with HIV,  young women affected by HIV (including young women in sex work and young women who use drugs) and young transgender people in Southern Africa. We invite grant proposals for the 2014 funding round.

Eligibility and Criteria: Only youth-led organizations or youth-led projects (these can be within a larger organization or a new initiative) focused on serving young women from key populations are eligible for funding. Organizations and/or projects must be based in one of the following countries: Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa or Swaziland. For complete guidelines and eligibility criteria, please download the Request for Proposals.

Work supported by HYLF: Local, national, regional or international HIV advocacy; Peer-based HIV services; Community mobilization; and Community based or community-led research.

Grant amount: You can apply for up to $10,000.

To Apply: Fill out the New Grant Application & New Grant Budget and email to:

Deadline: All proposals must be received no later than 25 March 2014, 11pm GMT. The applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as we have limited funding available. We advise you to apply as early as possible!

Grant Decisions: A Community Review Panel (CRP) of young leaders with experience in youth and HIV issues will review grant applications and make grant recommendations. The CRP ensures funded proposals meet the needs of the communities in the respective regions. Grantees will have access to mentorship and support from HYLF and our partners.

Apply for a grant and share this opportunity with your networks!
