In parallel, this year’s Call includes a special focus to end violence against women and girls in the context of protracted crises, to support organizations working in these settings through initiatives that meet the specific needs of women and girls at risk and survivors of violence, especially those at risk of exclusion and marginalization.

We will prioritize applications from women’s rights organizations, women-led organizations, constituent-led and grassroot women’s organizations. Either the main applicant or at least one of its co-implementing partner(s) must be legally registered and/or operating in the country or territory of project implementation.
