Karama Funds Eight Local Partners

By October, 2009, Karama disbursed grants to support eight action plans proposed by local organizations in Egypt and Jordan. Ten complete action plans were proposed and approved by realms and joint coalitions in five of the nine countries to date. Looking forward, Karama will be providing funds for strategic initiatives in Lebanon, Syria and Sudan. Action plans are proposed by local women’s organizations based within the eleven countries we currently work within and each plan responds to one or more of eight realms identified by Karama as significant in ending violence against women.
