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:
- Safety Net (through flexible funding)
- 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.
