SAMPLE LETTER OF REQUEST FOR FUNDING TO: FROM: RE: DATE: (Name of Organisation/Individual) _______________________________ is an active member of the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR) since _______. Established in 1984, WGNRR is a network of more than 1,000 groups and individuals in 157 countries. Historically, WGNRR has played a major role in the fight for reproductive freedom for all women. It has been the political home of grassroots and feminist activist organisations and social justice advocates worldwide. The Network’s vision is a world where women and men can live their social, sexual, and reproductive lives free from socio-political, cultural, or economic oppression, in keeping with their personally held values, in dignity and in good health. Its mission is to inform, link, engage, and strengthen organisations and individuals for them to effectively promote the reproductive and sexual health and rights of women and girls. This coming October 15-17, 2009, WGNRR network members in Asia and the Pacific will convene for a Regional Consultation Meeting (RCM) in Beijing, China. The objective of the RCM is to strengthen linkages among grassroots members to facilitate networking and place reproductive and sexual health and rights (RSHR) issues on the ICPD +15 and global development agenda. Attending the RCM will facilitate mutual learning among network members on our different experiences, insights and information relating to our common RSHR advocacy. Likewise, it will give us the opportunity to focus on advocacy campaigning strategies that will complement our current position on Population and Development and related issues. It is in this light that we would like to request for funding for us to be able to send a representative to attend the upcoming regional consultation meeting.
