The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) Moldova Office plans to award small grants to eligible Civil SocietyOrganizations in the range of USD 5,000 to USD 10,000. Small Grants are intended exclusively to finance a limited range of eligible activities to support the development or strengthening of CSOs’ institutional capacities. 


UN Women invites eligible applicants to submit Small Grants applications for the eligible activities, as elaborated in this advertisement. UN Women is targeting CSOs in the context of Eliminating Violence Against Women and Women in Leadership and Governance Impact Areas.  

UN Women will consider awarding several Small Grants based on available funds under EVAW and WILG areas.  


This advertisement forms the basis for applying for Small Grants. It must neither be construed as a Small Grant agreement nor as a confirmation of a Small Grant awarded by UN Women to any entity. Consequently, UN Women is not liable for any financial obligations, or otherwise, incurred by any entity in responding to this advertisement. UN Women will not approve such costs as part of any Small Grant budget, and an awardee must not use the Small Grant to cover such costs. 

The purpose of small grants is to support the organisational development of the applicant CSO and NOT to finance the delivery of  programmatic activities. The applicant may apply for a small grant to cover the type of activities mentioned in Call for Applications. The grant implementation is maximum 6 months (from June 2021 to November 2021).
