The Latin American Digital Rights Initiative (Indela) has launched a new call for funding for organizations working to promote digital rights in the region.

“Indela supports projects that aim to promote digital rights policies and laws in Latin America, as well as the application and exercise of those rights,” explained the organization.

The financing seeks “digital rights projects with a focus on public campaigns, applied research, impact on public policies and litigation, at national and regional levels”.

According to Indela, the financing budget for the 2019-2021 period is 1.5 million dollars. The initiative decided to distribute the amount among different calls, the current one being the second one.

“Selected organizations will receive financial support of up to USD 75,000 for an average period of 12 to 18 months. Additionally, we offer specialized consultancies for the development of relevant capabilities to the selected projects”, the organization added.

Indela is made up of the Avina Foundation, Luminate and Open Society Foundations (OSF), with the support of the Ford Foundation and the International Development Research Center (IDRC).

In the first instance, the organization that make up Indela will be in charge of the selection; then a panel of independent experts will evaluate the finalists.

The call closes on April 4.
