In partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the ANDE Gender-Smart Capacity Building Facility will award five grants of up to USD $30,000 for pre-investment, gender-smart capacity building services to joint teams of one investor and 1-3 SGBs operating in qualified geographies (Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam).
Qualified applicants must demonstrate a commitment to gender equality, the capacity to carry out a capacity-building program, and a willingness to learn and return insights to the wider SGB sector. Investor applicants must match funds based on a sliding scale determined by assets under management. Applicant teams must involve a third-party capacity development provider if the investor applicant does not provide such services (e.g. targeted mentoring; training based on women’s needs assessment, etc.) in-house. See more information on requirements, timeline, application resources, and apply by August 18, 2021.
