The Legacy Fund

The Legacy Fund immortalises the contributions of African women who have committed their lives to the women’s movement, democratic values, and the development of their communities.

Many African women who make vast contributions to feminist social movements pass away with no comprehensive record of their accomplishments. This special fund enables African women’s organisations to document the lives of African women through documentaries, films, photographs, memorial lectures, books and monographs, building projects or contributions to scholarship funds for young girls.

In order to streamline our application process, AWDF is currently accepting proposals online. We strongly recommend that you read through our application guidelines before you submit an application.
