AWDF’s grantmaking ensures resources reach the hundreds of African women’s organisations that are working in diverse ways to improve the lives of women and African society at large.

Our grantmaking is innovative, flexible and creative. Through our grants we support both established and small, locally based women’s organisations. We also provide specialised funding to facilitate learning and networking opportunities and to celebrate the contributions and achievements of many un-sung African heroines.

AWDF focuses its grants in three specific areas. These are defined by the different facets of work that ensure that the needs, aspirations and contributions of African women are recognised, supported and valued.
