The call is focusing on three themes: health, environment and climate change and freedom of expression. Projects must address one or more of these three themes.

As one of the three intergovernmental pillars of the Commonwealth, the Foundation operates within that critical space between government and the people. The Foundation works to bring the voice of civil society into all aspects of governance, supporting civil society engagement in shaping the policies and decisions that affect people’s lives.
