As part of the Stand Up project, Oxfam Canada is pleased to announce support for several initiatives that will raise awareness in Canada about sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), such as:
Oxfam Canada will be supporting public engagement initiatives based in Canada under 2 different streams: one for individual youth (age 18-29); and one for self-identified women’s rights organizations (WROs) or youth-led organizations (YLOs).
Selected activities must respect differences of gender, sexual orientation, identity, ability, race, language, religion, country of origin and political perspective.
Are you between the age of 18-29 years old and have a public engagement initiative you want to organize in your community to draw attention to SRHR issues that are important to you? Maybe it’s a film screening, a workshop, a radio debate, a discussion panel, an art installation – there are so many creative ways to raise awareness! We want to hear what initiatives you’re inspired to bring to life in order to make positive change.
We will provide between $1,000-$5,000 to support eligible costs to youth in Canada so they can implement their creative public engagement SRHR initiatives in their Canadian-based community, excluding Québec. We expect selected initiatives to be completed within 6 months of signing the support agreement.
If selected, you and your initiative will be part of a growing international network of incredible sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) advocates and initiatives like: Gilda Jacinta, an 18-year-old activista in Mozambique who promotes SRHR with in-school youth and through radio programs; Generation Alive in Zambia, who created youth-friendly spaces in SRH clinics; and The Network for Youth Development in Malawi, who have provided social media training for over 2000 youth to engage on SRHR issues and advocate for access to SRH services for youth.
We welcome applications on a range of SRHR issues. Special consideration will be given to applications focused on:
You can start and save your application as you go, so that you only submit when ready.
