Lifeline – Embattled Civil Society Organizations Assistance Fund

Lifeline Embattled CSO Assistance Fund
Lifeline Embattled CSO Assistance Fund is a consortium of 7 international non-governmental organizations that aims to push back against civic space threats.

The Lifeline Embattled CSO Assitance Fund provides emergency financial assistance to civil society organizations (CSO) under threat or attack and rapid response advocacy and resiliency grants to support CSOs in responding to broader threats against civic space.

Lifeline is currently supporting CSOs in pushing back against opportunistic civic space restrictions accompanying the COVID-19 Pandemic. Lifeline also prioritizes support to civil society organizations that face additional layers of vulnerability and restrictions, including women’s rights and women-led organizations and indigenous, land rights, and environmental CSOs.

Lifeline has developed the following toolkit that provides an introductory framework to help CSOs think about how to develop an advocacy action plan. The toolkit is available in English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and Farsi. Click on the download button here to access the toolkit.
