About this event

AVPN has launched the Call for application for the Asia Gender Equality Fund, an ambitious fund to raise and deploy USD $ 25 million for the next five years, to support women’s economic empowerment across Asia. By bringing together funders with a mission to address the challenges in gender equality amongst the most vulnerable communities in Asia, the fund will support local nonprofit organisations that are spearheading Initiatives aimed towards improving the economic outcomes of women and girls in marginalised and underserved communities across key markets of Asia.

The fund will help to scale up initiatives and solutions that help communities in twelve (12) priority markets – Japan, South Korea, China, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and India – to empower women-led and women-focused impact organisations.

Key impact areas that we are looking at, but not limited to:

  • Decent work opportunities for women
  • Women’s entrepreneurship
  • Digital inclusion
  • Financial inclusion
  • Vocational and life skills acquisition
  • Access to markets
  • Access to education
  • Access to affordable child and elderly care

We are inviting interested and potential non-profit organisations to join the second Information Session of the fund. The Information Session will be open for the public to join and ask any questions about the fund process and eligibility criteria.
