In honor of International Women’s Rights Day this Sunday, March 8th, I wanted to share the two resources below. The first one is a list of funding opportunities for women’s empowerment from from the listserve FundsforNGOs (the resource is full of useful funding resources for women’s empowerment), followed by an interesting toolkit to promote women’s economic empowerment in the face of intimate violence by WE GO!
Also, in light of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) 64 being cancelled due to concerns about the corona virus, we wanted to ask if there are members who would be interested in joining a virtual roundtable later this month to discuss issues around women’s rights and legal empowerment. Please reply below if interested, and more details to come about that soon.
Every year on March 8, the world celebrates “International Women’s Day” to recognize the outstanding contributions of all women to help forge a gender-equal world we all deserve. Small actions can have big impacts in making this vision a reality. Let’s make 2020 count for women and girls everywhere. Therefore, we have compiled a list of new funding opportunities for NGOs working to promote gender equality worldwide.

- Toolkit to Promote Women’s Economic Empowerment for Anti-Violence Centres’ Operators by We Go! - description from the toolkit:
[the toolkit] is a training toolkit to build or improve the practitioners’ know-how and skills for supporting women in an effort to increase their social and economic empowerment with the goal of becoming self-sufficient in order to live a life free from intimate partner violence. The toolkit provides methodologies and tools that can be adopted or embedded in existing working practices, enhancing their effectiveness with no additional burden.
Happy International Women’s Rights Day!!!
