The Women’s Fund provides strategic support in terms of generally working with key stakeholders and influencers to create a more enabling environment for women to contest in. Our trained team of campaign managers are, at the discretion of the candidates available to support campaigns and we also recognize that elections are expensive and women are usually at a disadvantage when it comes to bearing the burden of this cost. For women who meet the eligibility criteria, we support their campaigns with spend grants. What this means is, there are some costs which all campaigns have: the cost of renting space or vehicles, the cost of printing posters and hand bills or paying for radio and television advertising time, the Women’s Fund will make those payments for our candidates i.e., spend on their behalf.
