New Perspectives, New Solutions: Funding Organising Led by Girls and Young Women

10 de abril de 2020


In order to increase awareness of the importance of funding girls’ and young women’s groups, and to create new models for supporting their activism, Mama Cash and the Central American Women’s Fund set up the Community of Practice (CoP) in 2011. Over three years of working closely with young women, exploring young feminist culture and reassessing their own internal systems, CoP members learned that it is not only necessary for funders to take notice of young women’s and girls’ groups, but vital. This paper lists seven recommendations to consider when venturing into this exciting sphere along with examples of how CoP members moved these ideas in action.
