Irish Aid has a long tradition of supporting Irish NGOs and Missionaries, as well as civil society committed to continuing to support civil society organizations as partners in the attainment of the Millenium Declaration and associate goals for poverty reduction, and in the protection and promotion of human rights.

As a measure to support the implementation of the policy, Irish Aid is seeking applications for one round of funding in 2010 under the Civil Society Fund.

Focus of work: the agency must be engaged in poverty reduction, development and/or human rights promotion in the lower income or least developed countries, or in geographical areas within countries which have low human development indicators and a high incidence of poverty.

The deadline for completed applications is 11th June 2010

    Cherish Others Organization, , a local NGO is based in TransMara and Nairobi , Kenya . Cherish Others challenges the outdated tradition of Female Genital Mutilation which perpetuates marginalization of women by conducting campaigns against FGM as well as mentoring young girls for professional development. Cherish Others also seeks to improve the impoverished livelihoods of the target communities by accessing technologies and inputs that enhance food security in order for the families to be able to fund the education of the girls and do away with FGM for the girls for sole purpose of creating wealth.
