Six years since its launch, the Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) has become a well-established financing mechanism with a diverse range of funding windows supporting local women’s organizations and civil society leaders working at the forefront of peacebuilding and humanitarian action.
As you will discover in the pages of the WPHF 2021 Annual Report, this past year was one of grave challenges for the world’s women and girls, marked by the succession of ever evolving political and humanitarian crises against the backdrop of the deadliest global pandemic of our generation. Yet despite the challenges, our partners undeniably served as engines of progress and peace on the front lines, transforming their communities and addressing the underlying causes of conflict and inequality on the ground.
Thanks to the dedication of its donors and partners, in 2021 WPHF brought to 450 the number of local and grassroots civil society organizations it supported since its inception across 26 crisis-affected countries worldwide. Last year alone the Fund mobilized USD 37.2 million, making this past year its most successful yet and bringing the overall capitalization level of the Fund to USD 90 million at the end of 2021.
