#How to use this document. Think about a project you're doing or want to do. Look through the grants below to see if someone is funding work like it -- if you don't already know all about them, Google for the recipients' websites to see if your project is similar to theirs. Funders generally fund the same type of project, often fund multiple projects at a time, and are always looking for the great projects you're working-on to fund. Feel free to download your country page and sort the data how makes the most sense to you.

Next: Look-up the application dates and requirements from the funder and decide if you want to apply. If you have 3 hours to research grants, you should spent 1 hour finding the right grant and making sure you qualify, 1 hour drafting your grant, and 1 hour getting feedback from knowledgeable people on your application. If a grant went to an NGO based outside of your home country, look on their website to see if they are giving sub-grants or seeking researchers/projects to fund. Grantwriting takes creativity.

Last 3 tips: 1) Remember that past is prologue with funding. If a grant-giver has funded something similar to your project, recently, near where you are, they are more likely to fund you than if they've never funded your kind of project in your location. 2) Grantwriting is iterative. You should intend to apply for 10 grants to get one. 3) Share, share, share. You are very rarely in direct competition with other women for the same money and the relationships you build and grow will outlast any grant cycle if you tend them properly. Share your money, share your leads, share your application language. It will help everyone get better faster. Share this document: bit.ly/FundingSourcesByCountry

The East African grantees are six and we desperately need to host a second workshop for them and transport filmmakers from three countries to a single country to attend. In addition, we are hosting Kenyas first ever good pitch and 3 of which are DOCUBOX grantee projects. All are social jjustice films.

The group requests funds to cover the travel expenses for three of its young members to attend the AWID conference held in Istanbul, Turkey, on April 2012 and which will be attended by 2000 participants. The theme of the forum focuses on alternative economic paradigms, addressing the growing economic crisis directly affecting women as a result of the growing trend of state disinvestment from social and economic entitlement programs. Its members will be actively participating in the forum: the group will have a specific panel on women's economic participation based entirely on the outcome of its current work; it will participate and speak at the AWID educational corner; partake in the AWID/WLP/GFW strategy session; and lastly, take part in and speak at the EWR panel. In addition, CRTD.A stresses that the theme of AWID's forum is particularly relevant to its own work , as it is a key area of concern it has been actively involved in for the past decade. It specifies that as part of its interest in women's economic rights and participation, attending the conference will enable its organization to continue its mission of sharing and continuing its research work, capacity building, and provide it with new tools for awareness raising purposes. The group states that its participation will provide opportunities for women from the MENA region to get to know AWID by participating in the Forum and engaging with the global feminist movement. In addition, it informs that its attendees during the forum will be using various social media platforms to post insights, analysis, news, and coverage of events, which will be later consolidated in a Women Economic Empowerment Portal it is currently building

International Development Research CentreFederal University of Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro
Brazil2013$157,512.00Convening;Research;Fellowships;In today's rapidly urbanizing world, cities are sites of economic opportunity and social mobility, yet they are spaces of violence for increasingly large numbers of residents. As urbanization increases, new sites are experiencing violence and this violence is taking on new forms. Once `stable' urban neighborhoods are witnessing racial, ethnic, communal, criminal and gender based violence as a result of ever severe competition over services and resources provided by the state. In all cases those who suffer the most are marginalized urban poor groups- informal workers, women, the elderly, migrants, children and historically oppressed groups.,,This project introduces a new concept called spatial justice to explore the coping strategies adopted by these marginalized groups to deal with the violence, poverty and inequality being experienced in the cities of Mumbai (India), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Durban (South Africa). The utility of this concept lies in its ability to investigate how state policies and market forces impact social realities and the urban spatial landscape simultaneously. This will enable the project to document how linkages between the various injustices inherent in ongoing urban socio-spatial transformations are further heightened by inequality, insecurity, poverty and violence. Drawing on this evidence-base, the project will propose concrete recommendations on how urban planning policies can be reconsidered, both socially and spatially, to promote a more just, secure and equitable city for the poor and marginalized. ,,The methodology is qualitative in its orientation but will use quantitative data and geographic information based mapping tools to generate insights into the complex interrelationships between poverty, inequality and violence in these three cities through a variety of modalities. The project will build South-South knowledge networks at three levels: at the intra-city level through regular workshops and by funding research fellows in all three cities; at the inter-city level through the building of a research network that links three academic institutions in the Global South engaged in challenges of urbanization; and finally at the international level through publications and events that will enable active outreach and dissemination.,,This project is part of the Safe and Inclusive Cities (SAIC) research initiative designed to build evidence base on the connections between urban violence, poverty and inequalities. Jointly funded by IDRC and the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DfID), this program seeks to identify the most effective strategies for addressing these challenges in Latin America and the Caribbean, South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa
