Hlanganisa Institute for Development Southern Africa is an intermediary grant maker whose vision is to strengthen social accountability and promote human rights in pursuit of social justice. The Joint Gender Fund (JGF) is one of Hlanganisa’s flagship programmes that seeks to supports integrated, comprehensive and transformative GBV programming interventions that contribute to a strengthened sector that is more able to respond to GBV. The Fund takes into account the context of socio-economic inequality and aims to address GBV in ways that transform gender relations, address key intersections, and empower women and girls in particular. This is achieved through small grants and capacity building to civil society organizations and community based organisations implementing innovative gender-based violence (GBV) programmes. Currently, the primary contributors to the JGF include Raith Foundation, Irish AID and the Ford Foundation.
Whilst there are many grassroots initiatives aimed at addressing women’s land rights, many CBOs working on the same issue are in need of institutional capacity strengthening to implement more impactful programming while fostering a culture of accountability and transparency. Through this grant, the JGF will focus on strengthening the capacity of small community-based organisations working on women’s rights, and facilitate their engagement with local stakeholders, ensuring that they promote gender equity in the ongoing national discourse on land tenure. As such, the JGF’s role will be complimentary to that of other civil society organisations working in women’s land rights and also facilitate linkages between their work and that of CBOs.
In this call, The Joint Gender Fund invites CBOs to submit proposals focusing on women’s land rights. JGF will fund community-based organisations that advocate for women’s rights as they relate to access to land and tenure. This will be achieved through technical and financial support aimed at enhancing their capacity to engage relevant stakeholders and structures at local level.
