On the occasion of International Women’s Rights Day, the French Embassy is launching a new call for projects on March 8, 2021 to support initiatives on Moroccan territory in favor of equality between women and men.
CALL FOR PROJECTS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Who can apply?
To increase the impact of the actions supported, pool resources, strengthen the link with all stakeholders in the associative world and create bridges between associations, the projects must be led by a coalition of actors, with the aim of creating inter-associative and inter-regional dynamics on shared themes.
These could be several associations working together on the same theme in several regions of Morocco, but also associations working on the same territory in a transversal manner.
This call for projects is addressed only to Moroccan associations, that is to say, structures registered as an association with the Wilaya.
Associations led by young people and women are encouraged to participate.
What types of projects can be funded?
The proposed projects must fall within a specific objective in favor of gender equality, namely:
- Promote access to women’s rights and promote sexual and reproductive health rights,
- Fight against all gender-based and sexual violence by developing partnerships in the territories and innovative projects,
- Promote equality between women and men and fight against gender-related discrimination in the field of employment, training and access to housing, by developing partnerships in the territories and innovative projects,
- Spread the culture of equality and fight against gender stereotypes.
- Particular attention will be given to projects that go as close as possible to the target audiences.
- The involvement and direct and active participation of these populations is mandatory.
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.
