Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund Call for Proposal

The United Nations Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund and UN Women Bangladesh are excited to announce the Call for Proposals in Bangladesh to promote the socio-economic recovery, participation and leadership of women and young women in forced displacement.

WPHF seeks to fund qualifying local organizations and innovative, impact-driven projects led by and implemented alongside forcibly displaced women and girls in Cox’s Bazar (Teknaf, Ukhiya and Cox’s Bazar Sadar sub-districts) through the following funding streams:

·         Institutional funding from 2,500 USD to 30,000 USD

To reinforce the institutional capacity of local civil society organizations that have a specific focus on women and young women in forced displacement in their mission, that have project activities that are led by women and young women who are forcibly displaced and/or that have displaced women and young women as staff members.

·         Programmatic funding from 30,000 USD to 200,000 USD

To finance programmatic activities of civil society organizations that contribute to socio-economic recovery, participation and leadership of women and young women in forced displacement.

This WPHF Call for Proposals is linked to the Action Network on Forced Displacement – Women as Agents of Change led by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Grantees will be invited to participate in related activities of the Action Network.

An information session on this Call for Proposals will be held in English. To register, please email nusrat.jahir@unwomen.org by 13 June 2022.
