FLOW: Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women

FLOW is a new fund initiated by the Dutch Foreign Ministry to strengthen the rights and opportunities for women and girls worldwide. Minister for European Affairs and International Cooperation Ben Knapen has reserved 70 million Euros for this fund.

FLOW will focus on three priorities: security (including violence against women and UN Resolution 1325), economic empowerment (with an emphasis on food security, land, water and economic rights) and political participation. In these three priorities female leadership is seen as an important instrument.

Dutch or international NGOs applying for this grant opportunity must be based in or operate in developing countries. The programme must focus on at least one of the following three categories of activities:

  1. Activities designed to promote security by combating violence against women and actively involving women in processes of peace, security and reconstruction;
  2. Activities designed to promote economic self-reliance, through giving women a say in food security, employment and property rights and access to safe drinking water;
  3. Activities focused on the participation and representation of women in politics and public administration

NGOs that meet the criteria as specified in the application documents are welcome to apply for a FLOW grant.
