Previously, Urgent Action Fund has worked to build the rapid response capacity of locally-led women’s funds internationally. Our women’s funds partners used larger grants and capacity building support to meet the specific needs of human rights defenders in their country. Past partners included:
- Reconstruction Women’s Fund was formed after a strategic transformation of the Women’s Program of the Fund for an Open Society Serbia. It is the first local women’s foundation in Serbia.
- The Women’s Fund in Georgia is the first locally established grantmaking organization, which supports activities and initiatives for social change carried out by women’s groups in Georgia.
