Shifting the Power – Strengthening African Civil Society

UK aid from the British people

Programme Data Last Updated: 16/03/2022

IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-1-301034


By partnering with Comic Relief and the British public through five annual televised matched appeals, Shifting the Power will build the capacity of locally led civil society organisations in Ghana, Zambia and Malawi that are working in areas which are a priority for both DFID and Comic Relief - early childhood, mental health, gender justice and shelter. Locally led, Southern based CSOs will be supported to become more effective, sustainable and better able to represent local people’s priorities. The programme will communicate a positive narrative to the UK public about how aid is empowering local people to pursue their own priorities and to stand up for their rights.
