How we work

Indigo is not currently accepting unsolicited proposals. Experience has taught us that an open application process is burdensome for both sides and rarely results in new grants being awarded.

Through a combination of desk-based research, scoping visits, recommendations from partners and suggestions from grantees, we identify suitable partner organisations and projects to support. This approach allows us to directly target relevant and high-quality organisations, while reducing the burden associated with a high volume of unsuccessful, unsolicited proposals. We award grants to projects and organisations in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda. We regularly review the process to identify potential improvements to the system.
