How do our Grants work?
The Fiji Women’s Fund (the Fund) is an initiative of the Australian Government’s Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development (Pacific Women) Program. The Fund supports women’s groups, networks and organisations in Fiji to expand and enhance their work on women’s empowerment and gender equality.
The Fund works in the following thematic areas:
» Empowering women through increased economic opportunities
» Eliminating violence against women
» Improving women’s participation in leadership and decision making
» Strengthening women’s groups and coalitions for change.
Since 2017, the Fund has disbursed FJD 1.35 million in grants to 25 organisations in Fiji. Based on analysis of our grantee and funding portfolio, and feedback from women’s networks, groups and organisations themselves, there are some specific areas where the Fund needs to increase our support to reach more targeted areas and women/individuals of all diversities and abilities.
The Fund therefore invites expressions of interest from women’s networks, groups and organizations which are:
» Work with Fijian women from ethnic minority groups.
» Work with gender non- conforming people or work with people of diverse sexual orientation.
There are three types of grants available:
»Type A (FJD $150,000 or more): multi-year funding with contributions to core funding.
» Type B (FJD 50,000 to FJD 150,000): a one-year funding with contribution to core funding which includes human resource, administration or organizational support costs. Applicants do not need to have previous grant management experience with Australian aid or other donors.
» Type C (FJD 5,000 to FJD 50,000): grants can be less than one year. Applicants can be unregistered, small, developing, and rural- based organisations who do not need to have previous grant management experience with Australian aid or other donors.
