The Ugandan Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Applications (RFA), soliciting applications from civil society and private sector organisations to serve as Zonal Technical Service Organisations (TSOs) in Uganda.

Over three years, the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development will provide up to $6,600,000 in total, to a number of organisations working across eight zones.

Grants will be implemented through the Strengthening Ugandan National Response for Implementation of Services for OVC (SUNRISE-OVC) project, which is the culmination of six years of collaboration between the US Government, the Government of Uganda and civil society (via the International HIV/AIDS Alliance in Uganda).
