                                                     EMPOWERMENT GRANT FOR WOMEN


Women’s Network of the Methodist Church encourages, enables and equips women to
participate fully in the life of the Church and in society.

In addition to its ongoing work, campaigns and training in the UK, Women’s Network allocates
small grants of no more than £1,000, which act as seed funding to projects that empower women
around the world. Projects must meet a need identified by women at the grassroots and
supported by Christian women in the local community.

In the year 2010, we shall be supporting projects ONLY in Africa. In the following years, we
shall support projects in; Asia and the South Pacific, Europe and Latin America and the
Caribbean.

The fund is open to projects which:
 Can show they will be sustainable and can continue
 Empower women and build confidence
 Enable women to development in mind, body and spirit
 Encourage and equip women to become leaders and educators
 Equip women to develop their skills in future
 Are, or will become, self-financing
 Have the approval of the country’s Methodist Church Headquarters or a Partner Church of the
   Methodist Church in Great Britain (see list on p2)
 Provide a budget

The fund does not support:
 the cost of buildings
 payment of salaries
 ongoing expenses (e.g. regular building maintenance, telephone, photocopying)

Complete the 2 pages of this form. Add your budget (one side of A4) and a letter from your
