Internews: Inviting Afghan CSOs for Women in Media Grant Fund for Rasana

Deadline: 19 November 2018

Internews is currently inviting Afghan civil society focused organizations working to promote women in the media, to submit applications for the Women in Media Grant Fund of the USAID supported Rasana program. Subgrants issued under the Women and Media Grant Fund RFA will fund initiatives to support women in media (excluding the production of media content). Applicant Organizations must be registered and able to meet the financial/administrative obligations of a small grant.

The goal of Rasana is to support the Afghan media sector to provide reliable and balanced information to citizens across the country. Under objective one of the program, Rasana provides particular support to women journalists and women-run or managed media entities, including support to media outlets and organizations that specifically advance the voices and role of women in the media, and for the development of innovative and creative ideas to strengthen women’s role in the media sector. The sub grants provided by the openly competed grant pool – the Women in Media Grant Fund – established under Rasana, will support applications that demonstrate how they seek to support the advancement of women journalists. Priorities for funding include:

  • Activities conducted by women and media focused entities on issues of national/local importance that emphasize gender-sensitive approach to women in the media.
  • Initiatives to support women journalists to increase their confidence and capacity to participate in the media sector. This could include, for example, support for local journalists to participate in provincial level networking meetings, mentoring programs between older and younger women journalists, exchange trips or advocacy/training initiatives for gendered policies and practices that reduce the workplace harassment faced by women journalists.
