The United Nations Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund and UN Women Bangladesh announced a Call for Proposals in Bangladesh to promote the socio-economic recovery, participation and leadership of women and young women in forced displacement.
WPHF seeks to fund qualifying local organizations and innovative, impact-driven projects led by and implemented alongside forcibly displaced women and girls in Cox’s Bazar (Teknaf, Ukhiya and Cox’s Bazar Sadar sub-districts) through the following funding streams:
· Institutional funding from 2,500 USD to 30,000 USD
To reinforce the institutional capacity of local civil society organizations that have a specific focus on women and young women in forced displacement in their mission, that have project activities that are led by women and young women who are forcibly displaced and/or that have displaced women and young women as staff members.
· Programmatic funding from 30,000 USD to 200,000 USD
To finance programmatic activities of civil society organizations that contribute to socio-economic recovery, participation and leadership of women and young women in forced displacement.
This WPHF Call for Proposals is linked to the Action Network on Forced Displacement – Women as Agents of Change led by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Grantees will be invited to participate in related activities of the Action Network.
