Offer: The AWDF Main and/or Small Grants Programme
The AWDF Main Grants Programme is pan-African and supports local, national, sub-regional and regional organisations in Africa working towards women’s empowerment. AWDF will give grants for projects related to any of our thematic areas, applicants are expected to build in reasonable core costs into their project proposals. Grants can be given to support the capacity and institutional strengthening of organisations including grants for strategic planning, governance systems and fundraising/communication strategies.
The AWDF Small Grants Program (SGP), currently operates in some selected countries in Africa, namely Ghana, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. The objective of this programme is to support small, community/rural based grassroots women’s groups, which are most likely not to have access to any financial support or meet the eligibility criteria for AWDF’S main funding programme. Beneficiaries should, however, be running projects which fall within AWDF’s six thematic areas. The SGP also supports emerging or emergency issues, such as community disasters, activities that require a rapid response, and others.
These are two of the main grant programs that are sponsored and provided by the African Women's Development Fund. Please go to the website for the grant's application's instructions and guidelines.
