The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has launched a Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) under the project ‘Catalyzing Women’s Entrepreneurship’ (CWE), funded by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada, and implemented by ESCAP.

The objective is to partner and provide grant funding in Cambodia, one of the Catalysing Women’s Entrepreneurship (CWE) programme’s focus countries, in the following theme:

Reducing the burden and negative repercussions of over-indebtedness of women entrepreneurs and their families.

This call for Expressions of Interest asks for proposals from organisations helping to relieve the burden and reduce the repercussions of over-indebtedness for women entrepreneurs and their families in Cambodia. Repossession of land, and coping mechanisms such as reduction in food intake, child labour and homelessness are among the reported debt related negative spill-over effects. Organisations working with women entrepreneurs to support their livelihoods in light of their debt are invited to apply.

Project Implementation Timeline: 15 July 2023 to 31 March 2024, or any shorter timeframe proposed within these dates.

Applications are open to all organizations which hold a not-for-profit status in Cambodia. A proof of the organization’s not-for-profit status will be required as part of the application process.

EOI information detail and application guidelines: Here 

Application deadline: No later than midnight on 11 June 2023, ICT, UTC +7, by email to [email protected]
