The proposed grant would enable Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevoelkerung (DSW) to advocate for improved access to sexual and reproductive health programs in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. DSW plans to focus on ensuring that reproductive health programs are adequately funded and that expenditures both at the national and subnational levels align with budget allocations. DSW also intends to strengthen the capacity of local NGOs, including those led by youth and women, to provide community feedback to local policymakers and to engage in budget and policy processes.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
This core grant to Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung (DSW) would support the organization to ensure that the most vulnerable populations in developing countries have access to high-quality sexual and reproductive health information and services. DSW’s advocacy strategies include strengthening the evidence base for prioritizing sexual and reproductive health and rights, influencing political and social leaders, and building capacity of partner organizations. DSW has traditionally targeted the German government and the European Union with its advocacy, but intends to strengthen the advocacy capacity of its country offices in East Africa. A separate grant on this docket recommends direct support to these country offices.
