The SheDecides Spark Grants are now open for applications from young feminist organisers



About the Opportunity

Are you a feminist group working for bodily autonomy and sexual rights? Are you doing work that organizes your community to Stand Up, Speak Out and act together for her right to decide? Are you looking for funding to help spark your action?

What are Spark Grants?

SheDecides Spark Grants are small grants which aim to spark movement building, led by young feminist groups, collectives, movements and coalitions, for bodily autonomy.

Anyone who is starting to organize can apply for the grants, for any activity that fits with the aim - to 'spark' organizing for bodily autonomy. Applicants must be part of a feminist group, collective, movement or coalition.

The Spark Grants range from USD 5,000 to USD 20,000 per project.



Criteria:

Spark Grants are open for applications from any feminist groups who are organizing around bodily autonomy and sexual rights:

  • Groups led by women, trans people and gender non-conforming people, aged between 18 and 30.

  • Organizing projects and campaigns where those people whose sexual rights are at stake are the decision makers, leaders and organizers.

  • Groups working from a feminist perspective.

  • Groups based in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Arab Region, Eastern Europe.

  • Groups working on urgent and contested political issues around bodily autonomy and sexual rights.

  • Groups working on structural and systemic change for bodily autonomy and sexual rights.

  • SheDecides Spark Grants will prioritize nascent groups that have limited resources (e.g. no paid staff, no office space, etc.).




Submission Deadline:

26 September 2021


Please note that you do not need a bank account, residence permit or any other form of identification to submit an application, and your group, collective, movement or coalition does not have to be registered as an NGO.
