We work to:
Topic: Aboriginal Women Healing
Amount: $50,000 per year over three years
Recent reports (Statistics Canada, 2009 and 2013) show that Aboriginal women are more likely to be victimized than non-Aboriginal women. Aboriginal women who experienced spousal violence were more likely than non-Aboriginal women to report experiencing severe forms of violence, sustaining injuries, and fearing for their lives as a result of the abuse. This grant will be awarded to a non-governmental, community-based organization to offer healing programs to Aboriginal women that have experienced domestic violence. Culturally appropriate and community led approaches must be supported to lead the way in decreasing the victimization of Aboriginal women. Applicants will be required to include a description of their organization, proposed programming, budget, and an evaluation component within their submission. A selection committee will be formed to review submissions.
Topic: Engaging Men and Boys
Amount: $45,000 per year over three years
There is a growing, global movement to involve men and boys in the issue of ending violence against women. There is a need to engage men and boys to reduce and prevent family violence and gender-based violence; to teach men and boys healthy masculinity and strength without violence; and, to address harmful social norms and stereotypes around manhood and masculinity. This movement will help to create a new generation of men and boys to be leaders in their community in addressing violence against women and who will serve as positive change-makers in society. The grant will be awarded to a non-governmental, community-based organization. Applicants will be required to include a description of their organization, proposed programming, budget, and an evaluation component within their submission. A selection committee will be formed to review submissions.
Deadline for Submissions: March 21, 2014. Submissions may be submitted by fax, email, or mail.
