Window 1 is open on a rolling basis until September 2025 and focuses on funding to support CSOs to face unforeseen events whether they are external (political instability, insecurity, etc.) or internal financial issues (e.g. treasury issue, urgent and unexpected needs, co-funding to finalise a project/an activity or to participate in an event key in its sector etc.).

Location: Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Guinea, Kenya, Niger.

Eligibility:  civil society organizations, groups, movements and informal and unregistered groups of activists, networks or coalitions are eligible. We particularly encourage feminist, women- and youth-led organizations that, in their local context, may face significant obstacles in preventing and combating gender-based violence. International organisations are ineligible, however locally registered branches independent from headquarters are eligible.
