Syria – Support Feminist Movements for Change
As the Syrian conflict continues, WILPF seeks to support and strengthen the nonviolent grassroots movements that are working tirelessly to promote peace, justice and gender equality in the country.
This is why we launched in 2017 the pilot project “ Feminist Movement for Change in Syria”, which provides core funding and tailored technical support to Syrian organisations with feminist values. The support is designed to free Syrian civil society activists from the pressure of constantly having to write project proposals to meet basic costs, and instead allow them the time and resources they need to think and act strategically.
Through our initiative, Syrian civil society organisations can develop sustainable and effective structures, strengthen their networks, and advance their agenda to effect change.
