Application Deadline: 17 February – 31 March 13 April 2020

Mama Cash is pleased to announce that they will receive Letters of Interest (LOI) from applicants, who are not current grantee-partners, from 17 February – 31 March 13 April 2020, 11:59 pm CET.

During this application window for new grantee-partners, they plan to make new grants to self-led feminist groups and initiatives who are working on environmental justice.

Mama Cash has granted nearly sixty million euros to more than 6000 feminist and women’s rights organisations and initiatives led by and for women, girls, trans and intersex people in nearly every country in the world.

In that time, the work of women’s rights movements has led to revolutionary changes in public attitudes, law, governance, and in the private sector and civil society. Women’s movements have changed our understanding of violence, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and what counts as work. There is still much work to be done on these issues, and on addressing injustices of environmental degradation and climate change – arguably the most pressing issue of our time.

Women, girls, trans and intersex people experience not only the effects of environmental damage and climate change, they also encounter violations of their right to water, food, and a clean, healthy, and safe environment. Additionally, their rights to manage and preserve their communal land, wildlife and natural resources are constantly under attack. And when they resist, they experience gender-based violence such as sexual violence, harassment, intimidation and murder.
