Offer: The Web We Want Small Grants

I saw these grants and thought they would be relevant for you amazing World Pulse women.

Rapid Response (deadline: open, rolling)
Micro-grants designed to help when you face an unexpected crisis or
strategic opportunity that demands more resources fast.

Surveillance Action Research (deadline: open and rolling until September 30)
These grants will enable national groups or coalitions to investigate
their own country’s surveillance policies, laws and practices. Funds are
available for action research to provide solid evidence to underpin your
own local advocacy, media work and campaigning. The results of the
country research will also be published under your group’s name in a
special report on global surveillance.

Capacity Building and Outreach (deadline: September 9)
Capacity Building and Outreach funds are available to groups in selected
African and Asian countries to run workshops or training sessions that
will increase understanding of the value of an open, free, and
universally accessible internet and the policies needed to advance it.
Grants could be used to run interactive workshops or training sessions,
and/or to host a participatory dialogue on what actions or policy
changes are most important in your country; or in other ways that you
suggest to us based on your needs. Resource materials, including the Web
Index report cards on how effectively countries around the world are
using the Web, will be supplied to help you plan training and
awareness-raising sessions.

More details about the grants and how to apply are on the Web We Want
website. in English, French and Spanish.

You have a good idea. I'll go to read and find to understand what is requested to obtain a small grant from you.
It's very interesting, I hope.
