2022 African Union Civic Tech Fund (AUCTF) Fellowships

The African Union Civic Tech Fund (AUCTF) is a project funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and aiming at evaluating and sustaining effective models in citizens’ participation and policy influence with the support of replicable and/or scalable civic tech initiatives and citizens led transformative action across the African continent.

The AUCTFs is offering fellowships for 5 civic tech professionals for a period of minimum 3 months to technically support and to advise beneficiaries awarded the grants for the development of their civic tech initiatives in 7 African countries – Mali, Nigeria, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kenya, Morocco.

Successful applicants will help a broad range of actors scaling up their civic technology initiatives that amplify citizen voices or help keep governments accountable. Candidates will work with partner organisations selected through the African Civic Tech Fund to test, expand and boost digital tools and platforms empowering citizens.

The Charter Project Africa is a pan-African project focused on the commitments contained in the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance (ACDEG) – the central African Union policy document to advance democratic governance in African Union member states.

The project promotes the usage of civic technology to amplify citizen voices. This is achieved by providing financial resources, through grants, as well as technical resources, through know-how, to civic initiatives pursuing democracy, particularly those led by underrepresented groups. This support is delivered in eleven African Union member states – Benin, Botswana, Cabo Verde, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, and Zambia – as well as at regional and continental level.

The project also opens spaces for collaboration between citizens, civic initiatives and African Union policy makers, at national, regional and continental levels – with an emphasis on digital formats. A particular focus is given to the role and the mandate of the African Governance Architecture (AGA). Further, the role of the ACDEG in achieving positive change in African Union member states is monitored, analysed and promoted. Presence through a dedicated Secretariat in Addis Ababa ensures that linkages between pan-African civil society and African Union policy makers are strengthened.
