Donor Name: The Department of State-Office of the Secretary-US
Funding name: Global Programming Consortium to Advance the Status of Women and Girls
Funding Opportunity Number: SBUR-SGWIPF-17-002
Funding brief: Goal: To proactively equip civil society and especially locally-based organizations with the capacity, knowledge, and skills to deepen their expertise and influence on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), economic empowerment, and/or gender-based violence prevention and response interventions globally. This will include a specific focus on funding:
● Capacity-building, including technical assistance and/or training programs for local, grassroots-led organizations;
● Innovative pilot programs on emerging issues to prevent and respond to GBV, promote WPS, and expand women’s economic opportunities
● Building the evidence base for existing and/or established programs to contribute to a body of global evidence on promising practices
S/GWI seeks a proposal from one lead organization to coordinate the activities of a larger group of consortium partners. Potential activities funded through such a consortium, could include the following:
1) A focus or experience with emerging, cross-sectoral GBV issues, such as GBV and economic empowerment, survivor-centered job training, GBV as a barrier to women’s political participation, promising practices on the prevention of GBV through engaging men and boys, including traditional and tribal leaders, preventing harmful practices against adolescent girls, research on community protection response tactics for types of GBV, such as Intimate Partner Violence, and assessing the scale and impact of GBV in digital and online spaces.
2) Promote women’s roles in peace and reconciliation processes, specifically as mediators, as outlined in the NAP. These efforts would invest in scaling women’s capacity to serve in local, national, and international mediation roles, and/or address research to advance gender-inclusive mediation.
3) Expand economic opportunities for women, including women’s labor force participation, leadership development, access to information and finance, tailored technical assistance, financial literacy, and strengthened networks and mentorship.
4) Provide capacity-building technical support and expertise to local organizations, including those working on women’s participation and decision-making in countries impacted by conflict and crisis, as well as locally-based organizations involved in GBV prevention and response efforts.
