Deadline: 3 April 2020

The Claiming Our Voices: Beijing+25 Review and Follow-up grant programme seeks to amplify Asian women and trans* communities’ voices in global discussions during the review and follow-up processes for the 25 years of implementation of the BPFA. It supports feminist movements’ actions to hold governments and other stakeholders accountable so they make tangible commitments on gender equality. With an aim to build a larger understanding on the processes and outcomes of the Generation Equality Forums, Women’s Fund Asia will also support strengthening the networks of knowledge and information, creation of sub-national, national, sub-regional spaces, and other learning initiatives through this programme.

This grantmaking programme also seeks to address critical gaps—voices, issues, and information—during the preparation of BPFA national reviews and during regional and international consultations. It also seeks to contribute to building a larger understanding on the outcomes of the Mexico and Paris meetings. As such, Claiming Our Voices will prioritise constituencies that have been invisibilized, excluded, or have had limited participation in the Beijing review processes. Women’s Fund Asia especially encourages applications from younger feminists, dalits, indigenous people, sex workers, trans* people, women with disabilities, rural women, and other marginalised groups.
