Tilitonse Foundation Call for Proposal: Open Call Window

Tilitonse Foundation is a registered company limited by guarantee which was established in 2016 as a grant making facility to support Malawian Non State Actors to engage in governance interventions. The Foundation’s work is within the Malawi Government development policy frameworks such us the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy III and global frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the African Union Agenda 2063 and the Paris Declaration.
