FRIDA’s call for proposals informs FRIDA’s regional funding strategies, outreach plans for the next call for proposals and advocacy efforts. We discuss with the advisory committee the needs in each region, co-develop strategies that respond to these needs and even recruit advisors in specific areas of work.

Regional strategies

are co-designed with each regional advisory committee and are a guiding lens to understand contexts, needs, gaps, opportunities and challenges in all regions where FRIDA funds. This lays foundations for FRIDA’s regional and thematic outreach plan and ensures that FRIDA's call for proposals is both accessible and attuned to complexities.

Outreach plans​

are co-designed by staff and advisory committee members before each call for proposals to ensure that we have tools in place to reach out to young feminist communities. From ongoing focused online communication in 7 languages, to webinars to learn more about the application process, to local events, the many outreach tools we use ensure that we understand the conditions of groups in different contexts and how they need to be supported in the application process.
