1) Objective

The successful implementation of the first co-financed project under the Sport for Mental Health and Social Cohesion Programme was the result of a collaborative effort involving FIFA, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) – commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development – and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD).

The above-mentioned project illustrates how football and sport in general can bridge social divides, bring people together and make societies more inclusive. Following on from this initiative, FIFA and GIZ are launching the Sport for Women’s Empowerment Programme, which focuses on gender equality. FIFA and GIZ were put in contact by the AFD and have committed to expanding their partnership through the implementation of this project.

From 2 November 2023, organisations across 30 GIZ’s partner countries will be able to submit project proposals under the programme. In order to be eligible for consideration, projects must use sport as a tool to:

  • combat gender inequality;
  • tackle gender-based and sexual violence; or
  • empower and strengthen the role of women.

2) Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to organisations of public utility.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Africa, Europe and America.

4) Budget

Grants may range from €18,000-€22,000.
