By specialising in grant-making and focused, tailored movement-building programmes, we work to strengthen and support the work of African women’s organisations.

By amplifying and celebrating African women’s voices and achievements, AWDF supports efforts that combat harmful stereotypes, and promote African women as active agents of change.

fondo de mujeres del sur

Fondo de Mujeres del Sur (FMS) is a fund that mobilises financial and technical resources to promote women and LGBTI human rights. It was established in 2007 to address the lack of resources for organizations that promoted women’s human rights in the Southern Cone (Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay). FMS was proposed to mobilise resources from diverse donors, both national and international, so that they could reach organizations and groups of women with little opportunity to access financing, but with innovative proposals to advance the equality and social inclusiveness of women.
