The calls are open to feminist individuals and organizations working on women, girls, trans, and intersex rights in 17 countries across Asia.
Leading from the South
Leading from the South is a consortium created to resource feminist activism in the Global South, initiated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. It supports activism devised, implemented, and led by women, girls, and trans rights organisations in the Global South. Through grantmaking, capacity building, and other resourcing, LFS will strengthen movements, networks, and organisations—especially their advocacy capacity.
This call is open to women, girls, trans, and intersex-led organisations working with a national, regional, and/or global focus.
