Call for Proposals in Sudan
21 March 2022
The Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) seeks to fund qualifying national and local civil society organizations in Sudan – leading projects in the states of South Darfur, North Darfur, Blue Nile, and in the cities of Gedaref and Port Sudan
WPHF is excited to announce its latest Call for Proposals in Sudan to enhance the role of civil society organizations in advocating for and ensuring the local implementation of WPS commitments; accelerate women’s leadership in peacebuilding; and strengthen the capacity of local organizations working on gender-specific issues in conflict and crisis contexts.
The Call for Proposals aims at responding to the needs of local women’s organizations in fragile and humanitarian settings, with two (2) funding streams:
Funding stream 1: Institutional funding: from 2,500 USD to 30,000 USD
This funding stream will provide institutional funding to local civil society organizations working on gender specific issues in peace and security and humanitarian contexts, to ensure they are able to sustain themselves and to improve their impact.
Funding stream 2: Programmatic funding: from 30,000 USD to 200,000 USD
This funding stream will finance projects responding directly to the humanitarian crisis and the protection of women and girls.
Projects should be implemented in the following location(s):
- Two Darfur states: South Darfur and North Darfur
- Blue Nile
- Port Sudan
All civil society organizations can apply for a maximum of 2-year grants.
Composed of representatives from donors, United Nations entities, and civil society organizations, the WPHF is a global pooled funding mechanism which aims to re-energize action and stimulate a significant increase in financing for women’s participation, leadership, and empowerment in peace and security processes and humanitarian response.
The WPHF is a flexible and rapid financing mechanism. It supports quality interventions designed to enhance the capacity of local women to prevent conflict, respond to crises and emergencies, and seize key peacebuilding opportunities.
The focus of this WPHF call for proposals will be on promoting an enabling environment for WPS and conflict resolution. Special attention will be provided to applications supporting women and girls multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, such as those marginalized and excluded due to poverty, ethnicity, disability, age, geography, migratory status, HIV status, among others, which is in clear alignment with the 2030 Agenda and the principle of leaving no one behind.
National and local women- led, women’s rights, feminist, youth focused/led or civil society organizations with a proven track record working with women and girls, are eligible to apply. Grassroots and local community-based organizations are particularly encouraged to apply. Joint projects are allowed and encouraged.
Applications are accepted in English and Arabic
