Call for Proposals "Decent Work Opportunities for Women"

Date: Wednesday, May 9, 2018

UN Women is launching a new call for proposals (budget less than $250,000) for interested non-governmental organizations, academic institutions and registered community-based organisations under a new programme “Promoting Women’s Equal Access to Economic Opportunities and Decent Work in Palestine.” 

The programme’s overall goal is “to promote women equal access to economic opportunities and decent work in Palestine, and protection of their labour rights through reinforcement of equitable laws, legislations, policies and active labour market programmes, while engaging public, private and community actors.”

The programme design is articulated around two outcomes:

Outcome 1: Increased employment of women and access to decent and productive jobs through market-oriented skills trainings

Outcome 2: Promoting an environment that enables women’s labour market participation on the basis of equal opportunity and non-discrimination.

The application package with all relevant information, guidelines and documents can be downloaded here.

Interested organizations are invited to submit their full proposal by Sunday 27 May 2018 to palestine.registry@unwomen.org.
