Amnesty International Australia’s Human Rights Innovation Fund allows anyone interested in promoting and defending human rights direct access to funding to support new, innovative, creative initiatives.
The fund's objectives are to foster grassroots community activism, engage and empower a diversity of people to build networks and promote the growth of a human rights constituency, acknowledge the initiatives and endeavours of the human rights movement; and develop partnerships with other organisations.
Projects must have a demonstrable human rights impact and the potential to advance one or more the fund’s objectives.
Anyone can apply – individuals, local action groups, community groups or networks and organisations from any Australian State or Territory.
Applications must be received by the closing date 30 November 2017.
