This project is part of Canada’s Women’s Voice and Leadership Program, which supports local and regional women’s organisations and networks that are working to promote women’s rights, and advance women’s empowerment and gender equality in developing countries. This is done by supporting their activities, building their institutional capacity, and promoting network and alliance-building as women’s rights and feminist organizations are critical agents of change. The Program also responds to the significant, globally recognized gap in funding and support to women’s rights organizations and movements around the world. This project aims to support up to 190 women’s rights organizations, representing a broad spectrum of women and girls, including women affected and/or displaced by the conflict; women living with disabilities; women with diverse sexual orientation and gender identities; Roma women and women representing other national minorities; rural women, low-income and otherwise vulnerable women, including young and elderly women. This project is implemented by the Ukrainian Women’s Fund, a local women’s rights organization that, over 17 years of its existence, has helped over 300 grassroots women’s rights and feminist organizations in Ukraine. The Fund provides seed funding and capacity development assistance, enabling organizations to better represent and advocate for the interests of Ukrainian women.
