The Child Health Foundation has been awarded $10,000 by the financial services company TIAA as A Difference Maker 100 Nominee. CHF was specifically praised for its effectiveness with small grants, just $5,000 each. The Child Health Foundation have learned in distributing 137 small grants to child-focused organizations in 37 countries.
The groups then work to tackle local problems that are unlikely to receive government funding, such as neonatal health, pneumonia and diarrhoea.
About The Grant:
For the year 2019 the Child Health Foundation (CHF) wishes to receive proposals from registered non-governmental organizations (NGO)s) for innovative research or innovative service projects directed at improving the health and well-being of new-born infants during their first month of life. The maximum budget for these projects is $5,000 over a one year period.
Successful applications receive $4,000 when the project is scheduled to start and another $1,000 upon receipt of a final report.
Organizations must be certified, that is, hold registration in the country of origin. And we will ask for a credible reference.
CHF will consider a range of technologies and approaches including both biomedical and social science projects that show promise, are innovative, and may have wide-spread application. This year, the focus will be directed toward improving the lives of infants during the first month of life. The first month is a time when the infant is most vulnerable, and CHF believes that small innovative projects can make a major impact on child health in diverse settings.
