For the year 2019 the Child Health Foundation (CHF) wishes to receive proposals from registered non-governmental organizations (NGO)s) for innovative research or innovative service projects directed at improving the health and well-being of new-born infants during their first month of life. This is a time of high risk for babies and their mothers, and we believe that local groups may have some innovative ideas about how to improve the lives of these vulnerable infants. The maximum budget for these projects is $5,000 over a one year period. Successful applications receive $4,000 when the project is scheduled to start and another $1,000 upon receipt of a final report.
Organizations must be certified, that is, hold registration in the country of origin. And we will ask for a credible reference. To save time and money for yourselves and us, please do not include certificates of registration, recommendations, annual reports, or photos until they are requested. No other proposals will be considered.
CHF will consider a range of technologies and approaches including both biomedical and social science projects that show promise, are innovative, and may have wide-spread application. Projects that involve only general medical care of children, but without innovative aspects, will not be considered.
