Call for Proposals announced: Global Affairs Canada
Dismantling Barriers and Improving the Quality of Education for Women and Girls in Fragile, Conflict and Crisis Situations
Global Affairs Canada has launched a call for proposals to support a sustainable development approach to increasing access and reducing barriers to quality education for women and girls in fragile, conflict and crisis situations, including in refugee-hosting countries.
Successful projects will contribute to at least one of the following three pillars:
address harmful social norms and other barriers that hinder the demand for, and access to, education for girls and women in order to increase the equitable access to safe, secure, quality and inclusive education and learning opportunities for girls, adolescent girls and women, including those with disabilities
expand and improve the provision of inclusive, gender-responsive, safe, accessible, equitable and quality pre-primary, primary and secondary education
increase girls’ and women’s equitable access to quality gender-responsive skills development and higher education.
Eligibility: Canadian organizations are encouraged to collaborate with other Canadian or international organizations. Projects must clearly demonstrate collaboration with one or more local organization(s)
Required project experience: a minimum of five years of experience implementing development cooperation and/or humanitarian projects in fragile, conflict or crisis situations
Geographic scope: The project will take place in one or more fragile, conflict- or crisis-affected or refugee-hosting countries. Approximately 75% of the funding will be allocated to initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa.
Estimated size of projects sought: The total amount of funding available is up to $80 million over five years, and up to seven or eight initiatives may be funded with project durations of at least three years up to a maximum of five years.
