Supporting the Protection & Participation of Women Human Rights Defenders in Conflict & Crisis

The WPHF Funding Window for WHRDs

Français Español العربية

Together with its UN and INGO partners – in close collaboration with Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) from conflict and crisis-affected countries – the Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund is launching a new funding window to support the protection and enhance the safe participation of WHRDs in peacebuilding efforts across the globe.

WPHF will provide – in partnership with non-governmental organizations – rapid, flexible funding and direct logistical support to WHRDs from crisis and conflict-affected areas, working at community, national, regional and/or international levels.

The WPHF Funding Window for Women Human Rights Defenders will provide support to WHRDs through two funding streams:

  1. Safety Net (through flexible funding)
  2. Advocacy Support (through direct logistical assistance)

Applications are not yet open, but will be available here and advertised soon.

For general information please contact WPHF-WHRD@unwomen.org

WPHF has called for credible international, regional or national non-governmental organizations (I/NGOs) with experience working with WHRDs and women peace activists in fragile and conflict-affected contexts to apply to become a partner of the WPHF Funding Window for Women Human Rights Defenders: The 25 Jan Deadline has been extended to 28 Jan 2022. Apply today!
