Addressing inequalities and accelerating SDGs

Amplify. Invest. Reach. (A-I-R)

Women's Fund Asia

A-I-R is a pathbreaking South-South feminist collaboration among 4 women’s funds (Urgent Action Fund Asia and Pacific -UAF A&P, Women’s Fund Asia -WFA, Women’s Fund Fiji -WFF and the Pacific Feminist Fund) in the Asia and the Pacific region which is being resourced by Australian DFAT. The criticality of the partnership needs to be seen within the larger context of 1. the Asia and the Pacific being two most under-funded regions for work around gender equality; and 2. the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on women, girls and gender non-binary people in the region (especially in the specific context of SDG 5, 8, 10, 13). This initiative’s premise lies in demonstrating the commitment to gender equality and feminist foreign policy, especially by global north governments. And in doing so accelerating transformative social change led by voices and leadership of women, girls,non-binary people
