supporting projects that promote justice and equality for women and girls

Aims/priorities: The grants will be made across two thematic areas close to Jo’s heart:

  • Theme 1: Women’s social, economic and political empowerment through supporting women-led civil society. This thematic area will support civil society to take an integrated approach to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls – to tackle the combined and simultaneous disadvantages girls and women experience – in different areas and at different times of their lives. This will include contexts where space for these civic actors is closing or at risk
  • Theme 2: Strengthening civil society capacity for early prediction of identity-based violence including mass atrocities; and amplifying and supporting response to early warnings in order to prompt timely and effective interventions that prevent escalation and better protect populations from the threat of violence

Who can apply? Smaller organisations registered in the UK, one of the lowest 50 countries in the UN HDI, or in a country considered to be of high or moderate fragility, for organisations with an annual income below £500,000

Grant amount:

Grants between £50,000 and £100,000 are available for projects of 2-3 years
