The PISCCA development fund aims at encouraging local civil society efforts to gain better leverage in society while addressing critical issues by a two-track approach which consists in:

  • a direct support to local civil society projects fighting for women’s rights and gender equality through programming, provision of services and advocacy;
  • the provision of capacity-building support through targeted trainings and workshops.


For the 2019-2021 PISCCA call for proposals, the French Embassy will give priority to local NGOs working on the promotion and support of women’s socio-economic empowerment particularly targeting the most vulnerable groups of women, i.e. refugees and internally displaced, women living in rural areas, victims of GBV, low-skilled women, domestic workers, imprisoned women, disabled women, the youth, etc.

  • Building and strengthening women’s advocacy and leadership capacities in order for them to call for reforms in favour of gender equality and women’s increased economic participation;
  • Developing women savings and loans groups as a way to increase financial literacy, learn about money management, and save money for emergencies, basic needs and/or small business investments;
  • Increasing rural women’s participation in groups (co-operatives, self-help groups) and assisting them with improved crops, water and farming equipment to create sustainable economic opportunities by expanding markets and trade;
  • Raising awareness among men and women on the need to recognize, reduce and redistribute unpaid care and domestic work, thus improving women’s well-being and empowerment at individual and household levels;
  • Developing rural women’s access to microcredit and financial services;
  • Raising awareness of existing laws that discriminate on the basis of gender and affect women’s economic rights;
  • Connecting women and encouraging women’s business mentorship, coaching and networking;
  • Advocating for a safe working environment where women are protected from exploitation and gender-based violence;
  • Engaging different actors who have a critical but untapped role to support gender equality and promote the socio-economic empowerment of women (men and boys, employers, local governments, cultural leaders, media, private sector, etc.)

In case of specific expertise and/or proven track record, proposals might also include:

  • Developing and promoting ‘on-demand’ domestic work via platform apps to allow for flexibility, choice and independence for women;
  • Increasing the use of technology, digital tools and social media to promote women’s products and businesses;
