SUPPORTING WOMEN’S ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT AND LEADERSHIP
The Fund for Gender Equality is UN Women’s grant-making unit, created to accelerate women’s political and economic empowerment by providing grants directly to women’s organizations and governmental agencies in developing countries.
Economic Empowerment: Our grantee programs focus on increasing women’s access to and control over resources and assets – including land, water, technology, and viable employment.
Political Empowerment: To achieve gender equality, women’s leadership and political participation must increase which is why the Fund provides grants for training women political candidates as well as voter and civic education programs.
Help us continue to support these grant programs by making a contribution today.
