The new Days for Girls Podcast hosted by Jessica Williams takes listeners behind the scenes to hear from leaders in international development, female empowerment, menstrual health, visual storytelling, social entrepreneurship, and more.
SUMMARY: The African Women’s Development Fund has announced that it is accepting applications for grants which a number of African menstrual health or hygiene organizations are likely to be eligible. If your MH organization is woman-led and primarily staffed by women, and if it is based in an African country (especially North Africa, the Sahel, or Francophone West Africa), an August 2020 application for this quite-sizeable grant may be worth considering.
If you have been working on developing a radically innovative, discreet, and environmentally sustainable menstrual product innovation, consider the possibility of applying to the latest round of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Grand Challenges Explorations” grant competition.
VGIF is offering a funding opportunity with a deadline of July 26, 2019 that may be of relevance to non-profit MHM organizations based in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and India. The grant totals $95,000 (distributed over six years), and is specifically designed to support small, community-based organizations led by women, focused on projects that improve the lives of women, girls, and non-binary or trans individuals.
