Call for Applications to the Community Chest Impumelelo Social Innovations Awards Programme (CCISIA)
The CCISIA programme is a leading awards programme that identifies, recognises and awards socially innovative initiatives in Africa. Through thought leadership, mentorship, monitoring, evaluation and learning, strategic investment and pragmatic master classes, we are building an African-led, global social innovation movement.
This is an invitation to pre-apply to the awards programme. This year, we invite applicants from across South Africa to present innovative projects in various developmental sectors including, but not limited to; health, education, infrastructure and housing, income generation, social entrepreneurship, environment and conservation, arts and culture, and community development. Those who are deemed compliant in terms of the Community Chest due diligence process will be invited to apply for the programme and go on to be evaluated further. Successful applicants will be exposed to a rigorous and independent evaluation and adjudication process, culminating in the CCISIA Awards Ceremony.
Award winners can benefit from exclusive networking opportunities with funders and project partners. The programme regularly submits the work of its award winners to the UN Public Service Awards and the Dubai International Awards for Best Practice, and 21 of our projects have won international prestigious awards. All applicants will also have the opportunity to participate in one or more of Community Chest’s existing programmes, focused on organisational capacitation and project incubation.
The Pre-Applications process closes on Tuesday 30 April 2019 at 16H00 and the CCISIA Awards are held on the 10th November 2019 in Cape Town.
We invite all interested organisations to complete the online application form by completing this Pre- Application Form.
