Urgent Action Fund-Africa (UAF-Africa)

UAF-Africa plays a unique funding role in Africa by providing emergency grants to at-risk women human rights defenders and by supporting innovative strategies by coalitions of women and LBTI persons affirming their rights. UAF-Africa provides financial support and capacity building, while also producing innovative research on issues affecting women's rights in Africa. This grant focuses on building the fund’s capacity to support grantees to engage in advocacy for women’s rights to environmental justice and to respond to increasing repression.
