The project aims to increase the fulfilment of human rights for women and girls, and to advance gender equality in Ukraine. The project seeks to build the capacity of up to 65 women’s rights organizations (WROs) and to support up to 40 advocacy campaigns through the delivery of small grants. The project promotes inclusion of the women’s movement into a broader reform agenda and national development processes by engaging a diverse range of stakeholders, including non-government organizations, local authorities, key decision makers, media, trade unions and religious organizations. Project activities include: (1) strengthening the capacities (such as management, programming, advocacy) of five women’s rights organizations in order to become inter-regional centers of excellence (hubs); (2) empowering five hubs to cascade down capacity development support to local women’s rights organizations; (3) creation of an innovation fund to support and provide rapid funding for new ideas ; and (4) providing support to local women’s rights organizations to design and conduct advocacy campaigns on women and girls’ rights and gender equality.
