Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund

The Fund provides and manages grants community-based organisations (CBOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in priority districts. The priority districts are chosen for the five-year strategic period due to the challenges of children in those communities in alignment with the vision, mission, and strategic objectives of the Fund. These organisations that are called the implementing partners (IPs) are selected through a process called the Request for Proposals (RfP) which is run by the Fund periodically. The IPs need to be registered and have governance and all systems and procedures in place to work with the Fund on outcomes of the NMCF. Grants range from R200k to R1 million maximum and are guided by a binding contract which is supported by the implementation plan, budget and clear Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) processes. NMCF staff monitor the grants to ensure that they benefit children following the four focus areas. These grants run for a period between one year and five years depending on availability of funding and the performance of the implementing partner.
