About us

Home / About us

Women’s groups, organisations, or networks supported by the Fund are empowered and have the capacity (knowledge, skills, resources and relationships) to contribute to transformative change that improves women’s lives.

Women’s groups, organisations, or networks supported by the Fund are having influence at different levels (individual / systemic and formal / informal) and are contributing to transformative change in women’s lives.

The Fund has transitioned to an independent local entity and has secured funding from donors, private sector, and local philanthropy.

The Fund works towards reaching women living in rural and remote locations and those who are marginalised, including women with disabilities and those facing discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. The Fund complements Fiji’s National Development Plan and contributes to the Fiji National Women’s Plan of Action and the National Gender Policy, the Beijing Platform for Action, Pacific Leaders’ Gender Equality Declaration (2012) and Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

The Fund’s delivery approach is guided by the following key values:

Feminist: We are feminist. We promote transformative agency, autonomy, leadership, and decision-making. We are committed to supporting approaches that advance the rights of diverse women, girls, and gender non-conforming people. We practice rights-based approaches, substantive equality, non-discrimination, intersectional and transformative approaches.

Flexible & Adaptable: We are responsive to shifting contexts and circumstances. We are willing to examine the value of strategic opportunities to meet the needs of our partners.

Accountable: We are accountable to ourselves and to the community of people we work with, including our grantee partners, funders and the women’s and human rights movements. We are committed to being accountable by appraising and communicating the outcomes of our grantmaking and sharing our learnings.

Transparent: We strive to be transparent in the way we conduct our grantmaking, resource mobilisation, communications, administrative and governance processes, without compromising on the confidentiality and safety of our grantee partners.

Inclusive: We empathetically embrace diversity and are inclusive. We are committed to actively promoting, respecting, and supporting the rights of the most marginalised and oppressed communities of diverse women, girls, and gender non-conforming people in Fiji.

Collaborative: We believe in the power of social movements. We are committed to forging collaborative partnerships with the community of people we work with, including our grantee partners, funders, and allies to achieve shared goals.
