Call for EOIs: Fiji Women’s Fund to Support Women’s Groups, Organisations and Networks

Deadline: 27 August 2017

The Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development (Pacific Women) Program, supported by the Australian Government is seeking Expressions of Interest for its Fiji Women’s Fund to support women’s groups, organisations and networks in Fiji to expand and enhance their work on women’s empowerment and gender equality.

The Fund is expected to reach women living in rural and remote locations and those who are marginalized, including women living with disabilities and those facing discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Priority Areas

  • Women’s economic empowerment
  • Elimination of violence against women
  • Women’s leadership, including increasing women’s representation in informal and formal leadership and decision-making spaces
  • Strengthening women’s groups and coalitions for change.

Types of Grants

  • Type A (FJD 150,000 or more): this is a multi-year funding with contribution to core funding. Applicants must be nationally registered or an incorporated non-profit women’s organisation working in Fiji. Applicants must have previous experience with Australian aid funding or other donors.
  • Type B (FJD 50,000 to FJD 150,000): a one year funding with contribution to core funding. Applicants must be nationally registered or an incorporated non-profit women’s organisation working in Fiji. Applicants do not need to have previous experience with Australian aid or other donors.
  • Type C (FJD 5,000 to FJD 50,000): grants can be less than one year. Applicants can be small, developing, and rurally based organisations with no previous experience with donors. Applicants must be nationally registered or an incorporated non-profit women’s organisation working in Fiji. Women’s organisations, networks or groups without registration will be considered on a case by case basis by the Grants Committee in line with broader due diligence processes.
