Grant Opportunities: Call for Bids: Advancing Gender Equality through support to WROs and Movements

Must read

Deadline: 30-Sep-22

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office is calling for Bids to lead the Advocacy and Knowledge components of new Women’s Rights Organisations (WROs) programme.

  • The Advancing Gender Equality through support to Women’s Rights Organisations and Movements is a new programme comprised of 3 components:
    • Supporting grassroots women’s attendance and meaningful participation at national, regional and international meetings
    • Supporting the production and dissemination of policy-relevant products that reflect the priorities and knowledge of women and girls at the grassroots.
  • These components will seek to amplify diverse grassroots women’s and girls’ voices in donor, national government and international policy making. They will do this by:
    • Funding and facilitating WROs, activists, women peacebuilders and women human rights defenders’ attendance and advance support at key national, regional and international meetings
    • Facilitating more informed policy development by better capturing, synthesizing and feeding back learning and evidence from grassroots WROs and movements
    • A key principle is intersectionality. Both components will work with and support diverse WROs and movements, including those led by and representing women with disabilities and LBTQ+, as well as adolescent girl and youth feminist groups.

Sector: Empowerment and accountability, Girls and women, Research.
