Women Deliver 2019 Opportunity Grant | PAK-NGOs
Description

As part of our participation at the Women Deliver conference in Vancouver, Canada, AmplifyChange will be offering women-led, Southern-based organisations the chance to present their proposals for an AmplifyChange @ Women Deliver 2019 Opportunity grant.

This Opportunity grant will fund projects that will support movement building for SRHR. We will support new ideas to sustain and scale up established movements or support the creation and growth of nascent movements. The movement building work should contribute to successful advocacy campaigns to advance SRHR.

A shortlist of five (5) finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas live in front of a panel of SRHR expert judges during the final day of the Women Deliver conference on 6 June 2019. We will review the proposals using similar criteria to what we normally use (including the relevance of the proposed project, the potential to make sustainable impact, and the organisational profile and capacity). Due to the nature of the event, we are looking for confident, passionate advocates who aren’t afraid of public speaking.

 
 
Eligibility
  • AmplifyChange will consider applications from women-led civil society organisations (CSOs) working in all countries that are eligible for the AmplifyChange @ Women Deliver 2019 Opportunity grant (mentioned below).
  • AmplifyChange defines “women-led” as any organisation whose senior leadership at both board and staff levels is comprised of more than 50% women. The Executive Director or equivalent must be a woman. The definition of a woman is anyone who identifies as a woman and is inclusive of cisgender, transgender, gender non-conforming and non-binary people.
  • Organisations must have a representative(s) attending Women Deliver.
  • Civil society organisations (CSOs) located in one of the eligible countries are welcome to apply. They are particularly interested in receiving applications from women and youth led organisations.
  • CSOs can include:
    • Community groups
    • Youth groups
    • Non-governmental organisations
    • Indigenous groups
    • Charitable organisations
    • Faith-based organisations
    • Research institutes
    • Social enterprise groups
    • Public-private partnerships
    • Communications and media groups
    • Professional associations
  • International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs), including country offices, and UN agencies are not eligible to apply for Opportunity grants. They cannot accept applications made on behalf of individuals.
  • AmplifyChange will accept applications from organisations that are not registered and do not have a bank account because they recognise that some organisations are still new, and, in some contexts, there are security risks associated with registration. But please note that unregistered organisations that have applications successfully recommended for funding may need to fulfil certain registration requirements following due diligence and financial assessments.
