How We Give Support

Our Grantmaking

The Southern Africa Trust allocates grants to projects in the region of themes trade & development, industrialisation, food, agriculture & natural resources, migration & social protection, and climate change. We have strengthened our capacity as a reputable and reliable fund manager while promoting our strength in building the capacity of civil society organisations and acting as a knowledge broker.

Most grantees are national network associations that implement projects with a regional footprint. We also give grants to regional networks, regional apex organisations, social movements, civil society organisations, and media houses.
