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: 

  • Girl and youth engagement in the implementation of the AC blueprints and commitments;
  • Consultations with diverse constituencies of girls and young people to contextualise the global actions at the country and regional levels; 
  • Campaigns and advocacy related to the AC goals or action statements; 
  • Girl- and youth-led efforts to implement the AC blueprints; 
  • Girl- and youth-led commitments; 
  • Girl- and youth-led accountability efforts;
  • National level advocacy targeting government and multilateral GE commitments.

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 and we will do our best to accommodate your group.
