The Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) has created the Solidarity Fund for Women "La Francophonie avec Elles" with the aim of mobilising forces, both human and financial, as quickly as possible to take concrete action to support women and, beyond that, their families, as they are the ones most affected by the socio-economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This fund will support concrete actions in the field aimed at women in vulnerable situations working in the informal sector: development of their entrepreneurial capacities, information on their rights (health, citizenship...), support in their professional training and the schooling of their children, etc.
The call for projects is addressed to all actors in the field in African and Caribbean countries (associations, cooperatives, NGOs, cooperation agencies, etc.).
Deadline for applications: 4 September 2020.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
