African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) 2022 Call for Applications
The African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) 2022 Call for Applications is now open for interested women led organisations who have been registered for at least three years (before June 2019). A woman-led organization, according to the AWDF, is one in which the Board Chair and Chief Executive/Director are both women or non-binary, and at least 70% of the board and staff members are women or non-binary.
Are you a feminist or work for women’s rights in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, or Yemen, the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, or French-speaking Africa?
Is your organization concerned with issues of body and health, economic security and justice, leadership, participation, and peace, or climate justice?
If this is the case, then apply for the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) 2022
Information about the AWDF
AWDF will award grants under the Leading from the South (LFS) Initiative through this call for applications. Grants from the LFS will help fund projects in Africa, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Yemen.
Under this call, we will prioritize applications from women-led organizations led by young women, LBTQI and non-binary people, women living with disabilities, and other marginalized groups for work in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, or Yemen, the Horn of Africa, the Sahel Region, and French-speaking Africa.
The priority of activity in LFS funding proposals should be advocacy, while we will consider service delivery expenditures if they are less than 20% of your entire AWDF application budget.
You are eligible for up to 50% of your verified 2021 income. For example, if you have a confirmed income of USD80,000 for 2021, you can apply for a maximum of USD40,000 per year. If you have a confirmed income of $40,000 for 2021, you can apply for a maximum of $10,000.
