A note from the Managing Director:

The pandemic, with its exacerbating effects for refugee education and living conditions, and the humanitarian concerns resulting from the Beirut explosion caused a shift in focus for AMF in 2020. This call for proposals comes as we look to where AMF, with its particular strengths and abilities, can make the most impact in 2021. Our emphasis is on testing innovation with a view to long-term change.

We have recently updated our website, so as well as the Call for Proposals and Full Application Form (below), please do read through our Application Guidance and Grant Seeker FAQs. You may also be interested in reading what we have funded previously in our new Grantee Profiles.

If you choose to apply, I wish you all the very best in your application.

Our objective is to support civil society institutions in delivering creative and innovative solutions to problems facing refugee children in the Middle East and Europe who have been affected by the Syria Crisis. A broad range of initiatives will be considered, but preference will be given to applications that fall under the following themes:
- Innovative and sustainable approaches to make education (particularly non-formal education) safe, accessible and resilient in emergencies.
- Identification and introduction of wellbeing schemes into existing bodies and structures supporting refugee and displaced children.
- Identification of gaps in the existing systems of support of unaccompanied refugee children and addressing these needs.

Strategic Priorities

Two of our five Strategic Priorities are addressed by this call:
- Supporting the development of tailored educational settings to empower displaced and refugee children in host communities through the means of education.
- Supporting holistic approaches to wellbeing to help emancipate the most vulnerable and eliminate as many of their immediate needs as possible.
