Important New Support for OWFI’s Work from European Funders

We are proud and grateful to have received significant new funding for our work in the last few months.

The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a long-time supporter of OWFI, has partnered with us again for a multi-year project to support a wide range of OWFI’s efforts to advance legal and social improvements for Iraqi women.

Norad, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, has also provided important funding for our work helping women and their families affected by conflict in the Mosul area; both those who have fled to IDP camps and those who remain in the city.

And we must again thank the Rafto Foundation for Human Rights, who awarded their annual prize to OWFI President Yanar Mohammed in November. During her visit to receive the award, Rafto organized meetings with Norwegian officials, including MPs and the Prime Minister, which led to the award of the Norad grant. (read more.)

These two new grants join the significant multi-year funding OWFI receives from the European Commission, the Oak Foundation, and the much appreciated support provided by the other organizations listed at the bottom of this newsletter.

We thank all our funders and supporters from the bottom of our hearts.
