FORGE Programme Officer at SAGE Fund
About the SAGE Fund
The SAGE Fund strengthens accountability for economic actors by spurring innovation in approaches and building greater field capacity in the human rights movement to address critical gaps in protection created by the global economy. The Fund works interactively with NGOs, affected communities, and other partners in the field to cultivate new strategies and tools, and provides grants to pilot their development. The Fund also works with donors to facilitate field discussions and provide a vehicle for identifying opportunities for impact. The SAGE Fund is one of the founding members of FORGE and, together with Fundación Avina, is leading and managing FORGE’s collaborative grantmaking through the Response and Vision Fund.
