The Generation Equality Girls’ Fund is a pop-up, collaborative fund led by Purposeful and Plan International to resource girls and their allies as they engage in the UN’s historic Generation Equality (GE) process. The Girls’ Fund is designed to support groups, collectives and/or organisations led by girls or young feminists that focus on girls as they engage in the GE process. The Fund is offering funding amounts of up to $5,000 to groups involved in the GE process or with the intention of getting involved. These grants are flexible and we trust groups to know the best way to use the funds. Formal channels of GE include participation in the Action Coalitions (ACs), Youth Task Force and Girls Advisory Group, as well as National Youth Gender Activists. Some ways in which groups can be informally participating in the GE process include:
We encourage all groups to apply here on the Equality Accelerator website; it will be much easier to manage your application this way. However, if you are unable to apply online for reasons of accessibility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accommodate your group.
To apply for this fund you must be based in an ODA-eligible country. Here is a complete list of all eligible countries; make sure your country is on the list before applying. We can only accept applications in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic or French. Applications must be from girl-led or girl-focused young feminist groups, organisations and collectives engaging in the GE process, either formally or informally. Groups don’t need to be registered, but they need to have at least 3 members and be led by girls or young feminists below the age of 24. We don’t mind if you call yourselves a collective, network, group, organisation or anything else!
