Funding will be provided for projects that directly combat poverty, build self-help capacities for beneficiaries and strengthen local institutions. This round will focus on projects on gender equality, economic, political and legal empowerment of women and strengthening of sexual and reproductive health . Projects in African countries can only be promoted if they pursue gender equality as their main objective.
