South Asia Women’s Fund (SAWF) has issued a call for applications for 2015-2016 to provide funding for women-led interventions in the South Asian countries of Bangladesh, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
SAWF accepts applications under the following themes:
Strengthening Feminist Voices, USD 1000-10,000: grants under this theme provide critical funding for institutional support, research, collaborations and travel (to conferences, meetings and critical spaces), on a wide cross section of issues and topics that relate to women’s human rights. SAWF is particularly interested in supporting initiatives which are innovative and cutting edge; promotes collaborations among women’s rights groups; or strengthen the women’s movement – locally, nationally or regionally. Priority will be given to applications from small community based women’s groups. NB. SAWF accepts applications for travel grants throughout the year, for up to USD 1000; however, grants are very limited, and applicants are advised to apply at least two months in advance.
