Comic Relief is seeking applications for its initiative entitled “Safety From: Spaces To” in order to strengthen and build safe spaces and platforms with women and girls in Ghana, Kenya or South Africa; enabling them to recover and be safe, protect themselves from violence and create the radical change they want to see in their lives.

Funding Information

  • Work with women and/or girls in Ghana, South Africa or Kenya. The program are especially keen to receive applications from organisations based in the community in which they are working. Applications to work with national partners will also be considered
  • Women and girls should be the primary focus of the proposal and applications will need to meet at least one of these outcomes:
    • Women and girls have voice, influence and agency
    • Women and girls have access to resources, services and opportunities
