Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women (FLOW)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is working to improve the position of women and girls in developing countries through its Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women (FLOW) programme.

Although a number of global agreements on the rights, opportunities and safety of women and girls are already in place, there is still a great deal of inequality between men and women.

FLOW funding programs

FLOW funds programs in low- and lower-middle income countries. 93 million EUR is available for the period of 2016-202, for programs aiming at:

  1. Combatting violence against women.
  2. Participation by women in politics and public administration.
  3. Women’s economic participation and self-reliance.

Deadline for submitting FLOW proposals is 31 August 2015. For more information about FLOW, see the program Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women (FLOW 2016-2020). Specific questions can be addressed via our designated email address: DSO-FLOW-tender@minbuza.nl.
