WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT SMALL GRANTS PROGRAM

Type: Posted • Opportunity: BH-004-FY2024

Description

This program supports NGO efforts to enable women as equal participants in economic, civic, and political life in BiH. Proposals that go beyond awareness building to promote action or create behavior change or institutional change will be particularly competitive. We also encourage proposals that build solidarity among women from different cities, political parties, or ethnic groups, and that support vulnerable and marginalized women in BiH.

The Women’s Empowerment Small Grants Program supports NGO efforts to enable women as equal participants in economic, civic, and political life in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).

It also aims to prevent gender-based violence and all other forms of discrimination and abuse against women and to support community-based projects that improve the quality of life for women in BiH.
