Apply to the Creating Hope in Conflict: a Humanitarian Grand Challenge Canada program to receive funding of up to $250,000 for new ideas, and up to $3,000,000 for proven solutions ready to scale up, as well as mentorship, resources and ongoing supports.
Today, over 168 million people require humanitarian assistance. Millions of the most vulnerable people in conflict zones are currently unreachable by traditional humanitarian aid delivery. As the length and complexity of armed conflicts increase, it is progressively more difficult to reach affected people in insecure areas with life-saving and life-improving humanitarian assistance.
The Humanitarian Grand Challenge is looking to fund and accelerate solutions to reach the most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach people in conflict-generated humanitarian crises. Solutions that have the potential to create wider, transformative changes within the humanitarian sector in order to provide: safe water and sanitation; energy; life-saving information; and health supplies and services to help conflict-affected people.
