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 principles:

• flexible, responsive and accessible in supporting women’s groups, networks and organisations;
• influence and encourage transformative shifts in existing power structures to contribute towards gender equality and women’s empowerment;
• foster collective action and movement building of women’s groups, networks and organisations;
• promote and practice action reflection and participatory learning processes; and
• promote and practice accountability, transparency, inclusiveness and local ownership.
