AWDF is happy to announce the award of the first round of grants for “Leading from the South” for Africa and the Middle East, supporting advocacy and lobbying to advance women’s rights.
The demand was tremendous and we received many very exciting applications from women’s rights organisations and coalitions from across Africa and the Middle East. After a rigorous screening, 23 grants have been approved with grant awards totalling US $4,421,805.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications received, we are unable to provide individual feedback. Successful applicants will be contacted directly by Friday, May 26th 2017. For information on the basis of our assessment and our selection, please see the information below.
