The Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) has launched a Call for Proposals in Ukraine to support civil society organizations working to increase women’s participation in humanitarian and crisis response, enhance the protection of women and girls, and improve the socio-economic recovery and political participation of women and girls displaced by the war in the Ukraine.
WPHF seeks to fund qualifying local organizations in Ukraine through the following funding streams:
- Programmatic funding from 30,000 USD to 500,000 USD
To finance programmatic activities of CSOs aimed at increasing the participation and leadership of women in humanitarian planning and response (in line with WPHF impact area 3); enhancing the safety, security and mental health of women, as well as advancing their human rights (in line with WPHF impact area 5); and improving the socio-economic recovery and political participation of displaced women and girls due to the war in Ukraine (in line with WPHF impact area 6).
- Institutional funding from 5,000 USD to 30,000 USD
To reinforce the institutional capacity of women’s rights and women-led organizations that i) have a specific focus on women and girls in forced displacement; and ii) have women and girls in forced displacement as staff members (in line with WPHF impact area 1).
Programmatic funding on outcome 6 and institutional funding are 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.
