Special Call for Applications 2020-21

Due to the COVID-19 global crisis, many events related to Beijing+25 may be postponed or cancelled, and related advocacy opportunities with national governments are also likely affected. Therefore we have adjusted the deadline for our “Claiming Our Voices: Beijing+25 Review and Follow-up” call for applications to 23 April 2020 5 June 2020. The grants selection timelines will also be impacted so the results will be announced in July/August.

Are you an organisation engaging in the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPFA) 25-year review and follow-up? Do you think that some voices have been marginalised and sidelined in these processes? If you answered with a yes, this call is for you!

The Claiming Our Voices: Beijing+25 Review and Follow-up grant programme seeks to amplify Asian women and trans* communities’ voices in global discussions during the review and follow-up processes for the 25 years of implementation of the BPFA. It supports feminist movements’ actions to hold governments and other stakeholders accountable so they make tangible commitments on gender equality. With an aim to build a larger understanding on the processes and outcomes of the Generation Equality Forums, Women’s Fund Asia will also support strengthening the networks of knowledge and information, creation of sub-national, national, sub-regional spaces, and other learning initiatives through this programme.

This grantmaking programme is in collaboration with our sister funds Urgent Action Fund and Urgent Action Fund – Africa with the support of the Gates Foundation.
