ActionAid Nigeria has announced the WVL Nigeria Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF) which is a small grant designed to support innovative ideas and initiatives addressing gender issues with focus on women and girls from feminists, women and girls’ rights activists, feminist organizations, women’s rights organizations or movements in Nigeria.
The WVL project is a five-year project funded by Global Affairs Canada. The project is aimed at tackling the barriers to gender equality and supporting the empowerment of women and girls through provision of technical and financial resources to local feminist/women’s rights organisation (LWROs) that are advancing the rights of women and girls and championing gender equality.
The funding opportunity targets innovative ideas which can serve as a catalyst for new ways of doing things within the women’s rights movement in Nigeria. This call specifically targets innovative actions that address violence against women and girls, women economic justice and empowerment, women political participation and leadership including policy advocacy and influencing. It will also support other innovative actions that align with WVL Nigeria project goal which targets the achievement of gender equality and the enjoyment of rights by women and girls.
