ACWW offers small grants to women-led organisations active in urban and rural communities. Projects must be for the benefit of women and children and current funding priorities include:
literacy and basic education
food security and nutrition
access to water and sanitation
income-generating business and skills
In late 2015, Project 1000 was granted funds. Since the year 1977, ACWW has distributed over £2.2 million in grants to some of the poorest communities on earth.
We welcome applications from small to medium-sized women’s societies, NGO's and umbrella organisations based in less developed countries.
We also welcome enquiries from sponsors and donors who would like to find out about supporting our projects.
ACWW Project funding plays a significant part in our commitment to reducing global hunger. As part of our reporting procedures, data is gathered and fed back through the Zero Hunger Challenge and other mechanisms to the United Nations, Food & Agriculture Organisation
and other international bodies.
