Safeworld is not a funding organisation

Please do not write to Safeworld for funding or grants. Safeworld is not a grant-making organisation.

We are all volunteers. The organisation relies on the generosity of supporters has very limited financial resources.

We do, however, all donate our time, skills and experience as much as we are able.

We are passionate about helping to raise the profile of authentic grassroots women's rights organisations so that potential funders, donors and supporters can more easily connect with them.
