Urgent Action Fund-Africa provides rapid response and advocacy (strategic) grants to support unanticipated, time-sensitive, innovative, and bold initiatives. These grants enable African feminist and women’s rights activists, organisations and movements to seize windows of opportunity, fracture patriarchy, amplify their voices, enhance their visibility, and become significant actors who can influence policy and law while shaping discourse. This way, UAF-Africa fills a unique grant making niche within the African feminist movement, providing stepping stones to activists as they use their agency and resilience to achieve social, economic, political and environmental justice.
