FUNDING: Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women (FLOW)
FLOW is a new fund initiated by the Dutch Foreign Ministry to strengthen the rights and opportunities for women and girls worldwide. Minister for European Affairs and International Cooperation Ben Knapen has reserved 70 million Euros for this fund.
FLOW will focus on three priorities: security (including violence against women and UN Resolution 1325), economic empowerment (with an emphasis on food security, land, water and economic rights) and political participation. In these three priorities female leadership is seen as an important instrument.
NGOs that meet the criteria as specified in the application documents are welcome to apply for a FLOW grant.
Deadline: July 29, 2011
