Dear WAVE Members,

The call for Advocacy & Campaigning (A&C) One-Off Capacity-Building Microgrants is now open to all WAVE Members.

These microgrants aim to strengthen the capacity of members to put Advocacy & Campaigning into action and jointly contribute to initiatives or knowledge-sharing activities that demonstrate the crucial role WSS play in advancing and defending women’s rights. The A&C microgrants comprise two different types of grants:

  • Type 1- A&C Initiative Microgrants: These microgrants can be used to develop new advocacy & campaigning initiatives linked to WSS and feminist legislation. Proposals for Type 1 grants should focus on promoting specific policy changes or recommendations that centre on the role WSS and feminist CSOs play in promoting women’s human rights.
  • Type 2 – A&C Training Microgrants: These microgrants can be used to cover the costs of relevant training on A&C tools to strengthen members’ advocacy abilities and those of other WAVE members via knowledge sharing. Type 2 grants should focus on knowledge acquiring and sharing. Members who receive this grant are expected to make the knowledge acquired available to other WAVE members.
