Thank you to all the organisations that submitted an Expression of Interest (EOIs) in our 2015 grant round.
EOIs closed last week and our grants subcommittee, comprising 100 Women members, will assess the submissions over the coming weeks. A diverse range of projects were highlighted in the EOIs, from organisations large and small located across Australia and the south-east Asian region.
Projects covered such areas as perinatal mental health, financial literacy, prosecution of serious crimes against children, sexual assault prevention, promotion of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) studies for young women and community research training for Aboriginal women. It is a very exciting and inspiring time of the year when we get a glimpse of the great projects that are out there supporting women and girls.
At the same time, it is a reminder that there is so much more that needs to be done to ensure that all women and girls can live safely with access to health, education and economic freedom.
100 Women members collectively decide on the grant recipients. It is not too late to join us in making a significant impact in the lives of women and girls. Find out more by visiting our website.
