The AWDF Small Grants Program (SGP), currently operates in some selected countries in Africa, namely Ghana, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia and
Nigeria. The objective of this programme is to support small, community/rural based grassroots women’s groups, which are most likely not to have access to any financial support or meet the eligibility criteria for AWDF’S main funding programme. Beneficiaries should, however, be running projects which fall within AWDF’s six thematic areas. The SGP also supports emerging or emergency issues, such as community disasters, activities that require a rapid response, and others.
