The DICE Fund awarded £2 million in grants to support the growth of creative and social enterprise in Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Africa and the UK.
The DICE Fund is part of the wider DICE programme which was set up to tackle entrenched issues of unemployment and unequal economic growth in these six countries.
Two types of grants are awarded through the DICE Fund: Scoping and Business Development Grants and Collaboration Grants. Applications for both types of grants are now closed.
These grants are jointly awarded to partnerships comprising a UK-based organisation and a partner in another DICE country. The partners draw on the grants to co-design and co-deliver interventions that support the development of creative and social enterprises that specifically aim to:
- empower women and girls;
- foster youth employment; and/or
- promote the inclusion and economic empowerment of disabled people or other marginalised groups.
