New Journey,
New Destinations

2017-18 has been a year of several firsts!

From being the regional feminist fund for South Asia,
we have spread our wings — Our work will now cover 18 countries in Asia.

We provided more grants, we reached women’s
and trans* organisations in several new countries,
and we helped take local voices and concerns to international platforms.

When we look back at 2017–18,
there is a sense of accomplishment.


But the transition from South Asia Women's Fund to Women's Fund Asia was not an overnight one.

The process that began in 2016 was intense. We engaged and reflected with our team, board, partners, and advisors to evolve an Asian strategy—a new approach.

Journey of


We offer grants under
two main programmes:
  • Strengthening South Asian
    Feminist Movements Programme
  • Leading from the South Programme

Our grant-making has increased steadily over the last five years.

We made the highest number of grants - both in numbers and amount - this year!


What We Supported

Most grants were under the portfolios of Strengthening Feminist Voices, and Movement and Labour.

Several groups are being supported under the new Environmental Justice portfolio as well.
