Sonke is currently managing a funding award from Sida to contribute to the implementation and roll out of MEA’s Strategic Plan 2019-2023, named “Accountability to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): A Human Rights and Gender Justice Agenda for MenEngage Africa.”
An important component of MEA’s Strategic Plan is to strengthen the capacity of MEA and its country networks in resource mobilisation (RM). An RM Working Group has been established and is in the process of developing an MEA RM Strategic Plan that will align with MEA’s overall Strategic Plan. The Sida budget for 2020-2021 includes some funding for resource mobilisation activities, which have to date not been spent as a result of Covid-19 restrictions. Sonke is therefore offering an opportunity for Country networks to submit concept notes for small funding awards based on their specific RM needs.
