    Urgent Action Fund-Africa (UAF-Africa) is a feminist, pan-African, rapid response Fund committed to transforming power relations through resourcing African feminists and women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) and their formations, as an act of solidarity. We are a part of the ecosystem of feminist and women’s rights movements in Africa and globally. In character, we are bold and courageous, proactive, and responsive, creative, and rigorous, curious, alert, and agile, imaginative, and grounded, consistent, and reliable.


    The objective of this call for proposals is to invite eligible environmental feminists, women’s rights organisations, collectives, groups, and movements who are passionate and knowledgeable to challenge the injustice meted out to women in land grabbing, deforestation, extractives, and water. We aim to support transformative, catalytic, and bold initiatives that address a shift in power dynamics for systemic change that is inclusive and transformative. With the intentionality to focus on environmental women human rights defenders and organizations operating at the grassroots, it is an objective of this call to amplify their voices and allow for the building and strengthening of movements that elevate their contributions to the women’s rights movement.
