The Malawi Small Grants Programme started in 2009 during the 4th Operational Phase (OP4). The programme has been underway through 3 successive operational phases. During the 4th Operational Phase (2008 - 2011), the programme had a national geographical focus. The SGP maintained a national focus in the 5th Operational Phase (2011-2014) with a special interest in addressing issues in hotspot areas. During the 6th Operational Phase (2015-2018), SGP Malawi selected a specific landscape: the Lakeshore Landscape covering Karonga, Rumphi, Nkhata Bay, Nkhotakhota and Salima districts. The Mzimba/Rumphi/Nkhatabay cluster qualified as the target landscape for OP7. 30% of the resources will be allocated to projects targeting catalysing sustainable urban solutions. The programme will implement activities targeting vulnerable people and communities in urban contexts ( Mzuzu, Zomba, Lilongwe and Blantyre Cities).
