WPHF seeks to fund qualifying civil-society projects across Enga, Hela, Southern Highlands, Western and West Sepik of Papua New Guinea that are high impact, innovative, and contribute directly to the following objectives:

  • Support women’s and girls’ rights groups, movements and CSOs, including those facing intersecting and multiple forms of discrimination, to more effectively influence and advance progress on GEWE and ending VAWG, including domestic violence;
  • Ensure that women and girls’ safety, physical and mental health and security are assured and their human rights respected, including measures that prevent acts of violence, facilitate access to services for survivors of violence, and strengthen accountability mechanisms.

International, national and local women- led, women’s rights, feminist, or civil society organizations with a proven track record working with women and girls, in PNG are eligible to apply. Grassroots and local community-based organizations are particularly encouraged to apply. Joint projects are allowed and encouraged.

3) Location

4) Budget 

This call for proposals makes available financing for local civil society organizations in Papua New Guinea through two primary funding streams:

Funding stream 1: Institutional funding: from 2,500 USD to 30,000 USD
To provide institutional funding to local civil society organizations working on gender-specific protection issues in peace and security and humanitarian contexts, to ensure they are able to sustain themselves through the COVID-19 crisis.

Funding stream 2: Programmatic funding: from 30,000 USD to 200,000 USD
To finance projects that aim specifically to fund programmatic activities aligned with the Spotlight Initiative’s Outcome 6 and WPHF’s Outcome 5 (listed above). Projects can be designed to directly respond to the COVID-19 pandemic as long as they are aligned with the above two Outcomes.
