Rosa Awards Grants to promote gender equality (UK)
Rosa, a charitable fund set up to support initiatives that benefit women and girls in the UK, has awarded grants totalling £36,450 to 20 projects across the UK through the second round of the Voices from the Front Line programme. The programme aims to support women at the front of the fight for gender equality. Funding of between £500 and £2,000 is available to support projects that will increase the skills, capacity and credibility of women who wish to challenge gender inequality and promote awareness and change. The grants include:
- £2,000 to Fourth Wave: London Feminist Activists towards their project tackling period poverty
- £1,500 to Tender Education & Arts for their student campaign around sexual abuse and consent
- £1,200 to GlobalGirl Media UK towards training for young women and girls in film.
The next round of Voices from the Front Line will open for applications in early 2018. Read more at: http://www.rosauk.org/blog/20-womens-organisations-receive-a-boost-with-funds-from-rosa/
