Kenyan County Innovation Challenge Fund - Round 3 Now Open

If you run an innovative program in the counties of Bungoma, Garissa, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Nairobi (Embakasi and Kamukunji Sub-Counties) and Turkana Counties, apply by November 30 for the County Innovation Challenge Fund.

According to the CICF website:

"The County Innovation Challenge Fund is seeking new and untried innovative local solutions that will reduce maternal and new-born mortality.

The Round 3 Innovation challenge fund will support the design and delivery of innovative interventions, products, processes, services, technologies or ideas that contribute to positive change in the maternal and new-born health (MNH) sector. Innovations augmenting existing MNH interventions in the focus counties and targeting adolescent girls and youth are strongly encouraged."

The innovation competition seeks applications from organisations aiming to design, pilot, test and launch new interventions that will improve maternal and neonatal health in six target counties; Bungoma, Garissa, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Nairobi (Embakasi and Kamukunji sub-counties) and Turkana. The CICF invites innovations that increase access to and/or utilisation of quality maternal and new born health services by:

  • Strengthening health systems to manage and deliver quality maternal and new-born health services; and
  • Increasing demand for quality maternal and new-born health services


The fund will open its third call for applications on 14 October 2016 to 30 November 2016 and seeks to fund innovations in maternal and newborn health that will be implemented in the six focus counties. Applications should be received on or before 30 November 2016.

What type of projects does the CICF target for funding?

The third round seeks to fund innovations in maternal and newborn health. Applications should demonstrate new bold / radical / disruptive and untried innovative solutions in service delivery, financing, technology, processes and products that will strengthen health service delivery and/or access to and uptake of health services.

Who can apply for CICF funding?

The fund will consider applications from legally registered organisations that have been in operation for at least two years. These can be international, national or community based organisations/institutions including non-governmental organisations, faith-based organisations, civil society organisations, academic or research institutions, innovation hubs, social enterprises or private sector organisations. International organisations will only be eligible to apply if they sub-contract to at least one locally established organisation. The international organisation, as the lead applicant, must include a budget for capacity building of their local partners. Sole proprietors and government line ministries, including semi-autonomous government agencies, will not qualify for funding.

Is there is anything more boring than the current generation of gadget-addicted youth who do nothing but post the latest news about 'me, me, me' and 'what I had for lunch today'? I think not. gejala dan ciri asam lambung tinggi Every person I know will readily admit that I'm an introvert. There are those who will love me and equally as many who would despise me. But not a one of them would ever suggest anything about my personality was dull.
