The Citizen Engagement for Accountability Activity (CEAA) in Zimbabwe (hereinafter referred to as CEAA) invites Youth-Led, Youth Centric, and other youth groups legally registered in Zimbabwe to submit Concept Notes for the 2023 Youth Empowerment Grants (YEG). CEAA is a five-year activity implemented by a consortium which includes the CEAA secretariat, Legal Resources Foundation (LRF), Women’s Coalition of Zimbabwe (WCoZ), and Restless Development (RD). CEAA contributes to strengthening a culture of civic engagement in Zimbabwe by promoting greater and more effective citizen participation in governance processes at multiple levels with an eye to improved, citizen-driven development. The Activity works with and through local organizations’ initiatives and seeks unique methods, innovative pathways, and partnerships to achieve this purpose.

CEAA’s objectives are to: (1) Activate citizen agency for accountability, (2) Strengthen women’s leadership and inclusion, and (3) Enhance youth empowerment and positive engagement.
