Spotlight Guyana - Call for Proposals For Civil Society Organisations - CSOs (BRB30/CFP 2021/03 )

Date: Friday, May 21, 2021

Under Pillar 6 of the Spotlight Initiative Guyana Project, the UN Women Multi-Country Office (MCO) Caribbean, is seeking to partner with Civil Society Organization(s) to establish a CSO network for social justice activism to promote demand-driven quality service access and delivery.

Under the Spotlight Initiative Project, a key strategy is to establish a CSO network for social justice activism to promote demand-driven quality service access and delivery. The CSO network should focus on Gender Based Violence and Family Violence (Intimate Partner Violence and sexual violence) and should support social justice activism on these key priority issues.

The provision of mentoring and support in social activism and the establishment of a CSO network are expected to contribute to women's rights groups, autonomous social movements and relevant CSOs, including those representing youth and groups facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination/marginalization, being able to more effectively influence and advance progress on Gender Equality and Women Empowerment (GEWE) and ending violence against women and girls (VAWG).

The resources being made available under the Spotlight Project for CSOs are as follows:

  • (2 CSOs Grants: US 25,000 equivalent each). The two CSOs selected will be required to work in partnership.

Interested proponents may obtain further information by contacting this email address: info.brb@unwomen.org. Additionally, two virtual sessions will be held on May 25, 2021 and May 27, 2021 at 10am EST to provide additional guidance in responding to this Call. Proponents are kindly asked to register at this link: https://unwomen.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMpdOGvrzsiHNUncNUDLQeSWCdXBnBA-kp9 for the May 25 2021 session and at this link: https://unwomen.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJErfuyhrjsoHNDIJ7Vz5KYAN1uhzeh1SHV4 for the May 27, 2021 session.
