British Council are offering three grants of between £5000 and £8000 to organisations in Wales and Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) to collaborate digitally on international projects. 

This funding they are offering is from the Official Development Assistance (ODA) budget.

An Official Development Assistance compliant project proposal should:

  • Demonstrate that projects will make a positive contribution to the social and economic development of the Official Development Assistance country involved;
