Projects that have been tested and show strong outcomes, have demonstrated ongoing viability and are looking to be taken to the next level of impact and self-sustainability.
Focus Priority areas
Projects should fit within one of these priority areas and can be guided by the goals for these focus areas;
- Economic Opportunity and Advancement — Projects should contribute to improving women’s financial wellbeing and security, and support diverse and flexible employment opportunities for women and girls.
- Health and wellbeing — Projects should contribute to promoting and supporting a holistic approach to women’s health across the lifespan. The context is that women’s physical, social and economic potential is maximised when they are healthy and their health needs are addressed.
- Participation and Empowerment — Projects should contribute to supporting women’s engagement through social networks, access to information and building confidence using diverse representations of women and girls.
