Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women
Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women (FLOW) is a fund that has been set up by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to improve the position of women and girls in developing countries. Despite broad global consensus on the value of rights, opportunities and safety of women and girls, not enough tangible progress has been made, and gender inequality is still widespread. Both from a humanitarian and economic standpoint, this is unacceptable.
Because of this, funding is still vitally important, and a now initiative was needed. With a budget of € 80.5 million, FLOW finances 34 projects focusing on security, economic self-reliance and political participation in more than 100 countries across the world.
