Dympna Meaney Women’s Leadership Development Fund: 2020 Bursaries

Each year the Dympna Meaney Women’s Leadership Development Fund* awards skills building bursaries to human rights activists in the global south. We are passionate about supporting grass roots women working to combat gender based violence among migrant, displaced or refugee populations. Since 2015 we’ve helped more than twenty women access innovative leadership development initiatives;  Sincere thanks to Comhlamh for ongoing support in administering the Fund – helping us to keep costs low so that the generous support of donors has maximum intended effect.
