MPact’s Community Mobilization Manager Johnny Tohme was recently appointed as one of five civil society representatives to the Robert Carr Fund’s International Steering Committee (ISC).
The Robert Carr Fund is the world’s leading international fund focused on supporting regional and global networks led by, involving, and serving inadequately served populations. The ISC is the governing board of the Robert Carr Fund and is responsible for setting its strategic direction, funding priorities, and monitoring and evaluation framework.
“I am extremely honored to have been chosen as a civil society representative to Robert Carr Fund’s International Steering Commitee,” said Johnny Tohme. “I am here to communicate with civil society in order to ensure that the funds strategy is reflective of their needs. I look forward to working the other members of the committee to ensure that we are putting inadequately served populations at the center of our response.”
Johnny brings his years of experience in advocating for the sexual health and human rights of key populations affected by HIV including gay and bisexual men, people who use drugs, people living with HIV, transgender people, and sex workers. He will focus on maintaining a close relationship with RCF grantees and other civil society members to ensure their needs are represented on a regional, national, and global level.
This news comes at the heels of the Robert Carr Funds’ announcement of a request for proposals to their upcoming funding cycle for 2021-2024. Funds will be prioritized to global and regional networks and consortia of networks working to create HIV and human rights programs for inadequately served populations. The deadline for submission of proposals is 11 July 2021
