AWID launches FRIDA Young Feminist Fund

Recently, the FRIDA Young Feminist Fund launched its website with the goal of helping young feminists gain access to the resources that are critical to their work.

The fund was born out of an initiative of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) and subsequently the Central American Women’s Fund, with the belief that “Supporting young feminists is key to the expansion, rejuvenation and sustainability of women’s movements and organizations, both now and in the future.”

The first call for grant proposals (to a maximum of $5000) will be made before the end of the year. Grant winners will be brought to the AWID Forum in Istanbul in April 2012.
