The WES Mariam Assefa Fund selects grantee partners and awards funding through a range of mechanisms, including outreach to aligned organizations and open calls for proposals.

We do not currently accept unsolicited proposals. However, we deeply value innovative ideas generated by organizations and practitioners in the field and periodically issue calls for projects aligned with our areas of focus.
