The Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) has launched a Call for Proposals in Lebanon to support civil society organizations working to ensure the protection of women and girls, enhancing their safety, security and mental health and making sure their human rights are respected, as well as those working to improve the participation of women and young women working in peacebuilding processes and contexts.
WPHF seeks to fund qualifying local organizations in Lebanon through the following funding streams:
- Programmatic funding from 30,000 USD to 200,000 USD
To finance programmatic activities of CSOs aimed at (i) enhancing safety, security and mental health of women and girls and ensure their human rights are respected (in line with WPHF impact area 5); and (ii) improving the participation and decision making of women and young women working in peacebuilding processes and contexts (in line with WPHF impact area 6).
- Institutional funding from 2,500 USD to 30,000 USD
To reinforce the institutional capacity of women’s rights and women-led organizations working on the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Lebanon to ensure they are able to sustain themselves and to improve their impact (in line with WPHF impact area 1).
PLEASE NOTE: AN ORGANIZATION CAN ONLY APPLY ONE TIME FOR PROGRAMMATIC FUNDING AND/OR ONE TIME FOR INSTITUTIONAL FUNDING. ORGANIZATIONS WHO APPLY FOR BOTH STREAMS NEED TO SUBMIT TWO SEPARATE APPLICATIONS PACKAGES BASED ON THE REQUIREMENTS AND RELATED TEMPLATES OF EACH STREAM.
