For several years, the French Embassy has been providing support to Kenyan Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

Between 2001 and 2017, the Social Fund for Development (FSD), subsequently funded more than 119 projects promoted by civil society organizations, for a total amount of 3.2 million euros.

The current program named Innovative Projects from Civil Societies and Coalitions of Actors (PISCCA) replaced the FSD and became the main French Embassy tool to support Kenyan civil society organizations.

Within the framework of the PISCCA fund, the French Embassy in Kenya is launching a new call for proposals called Ell’imu for Kenyan civil society organizations.

For 2 years (2021-2022), this fund will focus on supporting girls and young women’s education in Kenya in four priority areas:

  • Distance learning and the development of digital skills for girls and young women
  • Sports education for girls/young women
  • Health and hygiene education for girls and young women
  • Vocational and technical training for young women
