Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights
Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights is a feminist fund that protects, strengthens and sustains women and transgender human rights defenders at critical moments. ‘Rapid Response Grant-making,’ ‘Advocacy and Alliance-Building’ and the ‘Global Consortium of Urgent Action Funds’ are the three ways we intervene quickly when women and transgender human rights defenders are facing threats. Urgent Action Fund partners with women’s movements across the world to create cultures of justice, equality and peace.
Urgent Action Fund - Africa
Urgent Action Fund-Africa (UAF-Africa) is a pan-African and feminist Fund. Using a rapid response grant making (RRG) model, the Fund supports unanticipated, time-sensitive, innovative, and bold initiatives. These enable African feminists and women’s rights organisations to seize windows of opportunity, fracture patriarchy, amplify their voices, enhance their visibility, and become significant actors who can influence policy and law while shaping discourse. This way, UAF-Africa fills a unique grant making niche within the African feminist movement, providing stepping stones to activists as they use their agency and resilience to achieve social, economic, political and environmental justice..
